I just took my Ncclex-RN today at 75 questions. I have applied to every dialysis center in my area and I have not heard anything while, FMC weekly posts new jobs for RN's. I have no dialysis experience and prior to RN school I have been an LPN for 4 years working in LTC and Assisted Living. I know that the economy is bad and im frustrated not to hear anything. I have read other posts that dialysis centers are very short staffed. I know that it is a big investment to train someone and I know that dialysis experience is definately preffered I guess my question is will some one give me a chance. What should I do? Do I have a chance at getting into dialysis at this time

2 months ago, I just took a critical care approved dialysis course (dialysis4career) that set me apart from the rest;the online course is just as good, because the companies will train you anyway for a minimal 12 weeks.... also I was willing to relocate. Just landed a job. the process is vigourous. You have to pass a psychological personality test online which wanted text book answers not real life answers. questions consist of how you handle nasty co horts etc...If you get an A or a B you get one interview..If you get a C, you have to be interviewed twice (too be sure), then if you get a d or an F they wont look at your resume for 6 months. The pay is not as great when you are new at it, but better with more experience. Dont have to work weekends...good benefits..and you can move up the corporate ladder.
