HD to PD

  1. Has anyone moved from HD (I currently work in an acute unit) to PD (basically teaching PD). Was the move difficult?

    I was in your exact shoes and made the move this year. The PD is easy. Working in an office setting and realizing how much behind the scenes and the associated paperwork is the hard part. Also, you're not just doing a treatment and walking away. You manage that patient and get to know them very well. You look at their treatment info online and call the patient when things look off. I think it was a great move as I didn't want to be in the hospital long term. I don't get on here often but PM me if you'd like to know more.
