    I would love to see how much Davita would be willing to train you. If you dont have the dialysis experience its just like having no experience at all. You may be favored and paid well but I've been in dialysis for 13+ years and they will hardly take the 17 years experience as a nurse into consideration. I work with a nurse now who has 14 years experience as a nurse and she's paid $26.00 per hour. she has only one year of dialysis experience. Davita trained her and she has been with them for a year now. In the city of Houston new graduates make are paid 25.00 to 26.00 per hour fresh out of school. Good luck I hope you get what you are looking for and I hope your experience with Davita if you accept a position is a great one!!!!!

    hello navynurse I hope im not too late. I currently work for Davita. I worked for them last december until around March. i walked off this job because at the time I was working more than 16 hour days and was working with very little staff and managment seemed to think nothing of it. Davita to me is like a cult. Its all about Davita they want you to think eat and sleep Davita anything else just simply doesnt matter to them. I quit and went back after i graduate RN because my best friend was assistant facility administrator and promised me it would be different. So I went back the pay was ok for the state of Arkansas 24.50 but to me it wasnt enough I am a new nurse but a veteran to dialysis. I found myself doing all the work charge nurse and PCT because the PCT's were either off the floor doing whatever they wanted or out of the building for whatever reason. again management saw nothing wrong with this. I transferred to houston texas with davita the transfer was horrible the davita recruiter did practically nothing to help me and I took a pay cut. can you believe it a pay cut from Little Rock AR to Houston Texas. the two FA's went back and forth abouthowmuch money I was makingat my Arkansas clinic. My home FA lied and told the houston FA that she was paying me less money then what she actually was. Then on top of that after I took the job she went into the system and put me in as terminated. I know this because after a week of clocking just fine here in HOuston all of a sudden I couldnt clock in anymore. The FA finds out why. Her excuse was that she wasnt sure if I had taken the job with Noth Houston Dialysis. My thoughts were regardless if i took employment in houston or not thats no reason for her to put me in as terminated i gave her a two weeks notice before i LEFT HER CLINIC. Shady huh? bottom line is Davita is a cult that has COMMANDMENTS you'll see them on the walls if you decide to take the job. Everything is done "THE DAVITA WAY" you'll here this more than you wish too. You'll be overworked underpayed, stressed out and unhappy until you decide you've had enough. Then instead of fair play they'll try and fix it where you cant work for davita again simply because you decided to make a decision to leave Davita for better opportunities. Bad co. with even worse managment. But hey I'm just one person with my experience. I plan to travel this way there is no salary issues and i get to see the world. Good Luck
