Aug 5, '07 by GeauxNursingin TX my boss is offering me 20/hr to start once I am done with my LVN...
Aug 5, '07 by AquamarineQuote from tired dialysis nurseThe thing is Davita starting pay is good but for the nurses that worked there for a long time the pay raises are very small, and for a nurse with experience it isn't that different from a new nurse just starting out in HD. That is why nurses sometimes have to move around, better thier education to do better...Davita in WNY starts at 23.90 without the differential, however, 1 1/2 hours away in Rochester the pay is much better...so it is all dependent on supply and demand. The shortage in Rochester is bigger, most all hospitals have nice bonus just for signing on...it is all relative.good lord, y'all are starting out close to the same rate i am getting after 7+ years of hemo!!!!!!!! Good for you!!! maybe i should quit my current company(davita), and do a little job hunting....while i love my job, getting up @ 3:30AM, putting up with grouchy techs, hostile pts, temperamental machines, hey-y'know what i am talking about....24.90 an hour sounds pretty pathetic right now. At some point, we all are working for a pay check, thanks for the info---i am up for my review in a couple of weeks...never had a poor one, so i am going to name a number this time!!! I'll keep ya posted , TDN
You have to look at working conditions, benefits, distance from your home. your coworkers, the management...it isn't just the $$ /hr. A lot of people leave a job and are so sorry...good luck.

Jul 27, '10 by MinerLisaI am a recent graduate of a Patient Care Technician program looking to work with DaVita in Southwest Florida ... anyone know what the PCT starting salary with them is?
Sep 22, '10 by drivesbarefootAnyone wanting dialysis experience, check out Alaska. It seems they always have an RN opening and they will consider new grads. I don't know what new grad pay is, but I was up to 37/hr when I left, and then $41 when I went back to work for a few months w.o benefits that time. Alaska doesn't take out state tax, plus if you work anything over 8 hrs its time and a half in the clinics for anything beyond 8 hrs. Doesn't matter if you work only one day that week and not 40 hrs. Anything above 8 hrs is time and a half! That extra $ sure comes in handy... The hospital pays up to $48/hr in acutes.
Sep 24, '10 by cookziedough[FONT="Century Gothic"]Davita's pay depends SOLELY on the regional director you have. They don't look at your experience nor edge as a dedicated nurse. I worked as an RN who had 10years exp and was capable to charge. I later on learned that a new grad in some other clinic was offered $2/hr more. I believe It'll take some technique to go around the industry to land the job with a reasonable pay these days....
Oct 8, '10 by majycle1I have worked for 9 years as a PCT with Davita in Kansas and am now graduating with my Associate RN. Was curious as to what starting wage I might anticipate, and whether the years of experience in dialysis should be a good basis for a higher starting wage as a graduate nurse. Any insight?

Nov 28, '11 by Cowgirlup1That does not seem right for a city the size of Nashville. Dialysis is a specialty field so I think no matter where you live you should get specialty pay. I have a diverse nursing back ground that includes agency work and I can assure you a nurse without dialysis experience could not hit the floor running. I can go to any ER, Med-Surg, Pedi, Rehab, Ortho, or Geriatric Care and operate on little to no training after being oriented to the facility. This was not at all true when I came to Dialysis. I'm not trying to scare anyone away but it is a specialty and I think the rate of pay should reflect as much. I can't believe the pay rates I have been reading. I have not been doing this for very long but I plan on staying in the dialysis field. I really love it!! No one likes feeling underpaid or unappreciated.
Nov 28, '11 by GuttercatI can't believe some of the pay rates I am reading here.
They will get you for what you are willing to settle for. At some of these rates, I'd rather be a Wal Mart greeter.
For those in the midwest and east...those are beginning salaries like I was seeing 11 years ago out west.
Hope RN's wise up, and realize just how much money you are making the company (DavitaFresenius et al...).
My God. That's sweat shop labor costs for what you guys are responsible for.Last edit by Guttercat on Nov 28, '11
