I'm looking for any advice/tips on going from outpatient to acute hd. I'm currently a staff nurse in an output clinic for a little over 6mos now ( nurse for almost 3 yrs with some hospital and community health exp), and i landed a per diem job in a hospital inpt hd unit. I know there are obv differences, just looking for a little more details so i have an idea of what to expect. 

greatly appreciated!

Following! I am interested in learning more about acutes as well. I currently have 8 months of chronic hemodialysis experience. I was told that I would need at least one full year of experience before I could transition to acutes.

what company do you work for? I had 6 mo experience and I landed an acutes per  diem job, even though its taken some time with the process and already having a ft time. I don't think the 1 yr rule is set in stone, it was probably a suggestion on a time frame, but by the time you have everything all set up you will be at 1 yr already anyways!

I'm at American Renal Associates. I think you're right-- with this company it's a year minimum,  but I think I could probably find per diem/ contact work in acutes.
