I recently interviewed for a position as a dialysis nurse in a free standing dialysis facility. I would like to hear experiences about similar positions that you may have had; both the good and the bad. Hoping it will give me some insight into a position as such. Thanks!

I've been doing dialysis nursing for 3 weeks. I'm still learning the ropes and will be for a while. I've heard that you either love it or hate it. I haven't picked a side yet. The one thing I will say is that it is repetitive. You literally do the same thing over and over and over again.

Do you have previous nursing experience? I am a new graduate and they seem to be warning me of the responsibility necessary to be leader at a clinic. Any thoughts?

From what I have read about acute dialysis - ON CALL. Some times >100 hrs/week. Even docs will say that it can suck the life from you. Clinic dialysis schedules would be more structured of course. Could be good or bad considering your point of view. :)
