    New job in Dialysis!

    Yes my pay will stay the same. I will post an update once I start training in home hemo. And thanks!

    New job in Dialysis!

    Thanks for sharing! I’m out of training as of last week and I’m working in the in center chronic unit until after my vacation. Then I’ll transfer to home hemo dept. My schedule will then be Monday- Friday 0800-1630. And I’ll have an on call cell phone that I’ll get paid to carry.

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying acutes! Maybe I’ll try it one day. I would be nervous about being on my own but at the same time I would love it once I felt comfortable enough. What is your schedule like?

    New job in Dialysis!

    Thank you! The only thing I don’t like about the position is the on call. But no job is perfect right?

    Thanks for this advice! And this is actually how my clinic does the training!

    Everything definitely moves fast! Sometimes I feel like it moves a bit too fast, but I’m going to do the best I can to keep up! Hopefully I continue to like it because some of the patients are asking me not to leave!

    New job in Dialysis!

    Welcome to dialysis! So far my experience is going good overall. I just finished my 4th week of training. I’m in a outpatient chronic hemodialysis center that has 43 chairs and runs 3 shifts Monday, Wednesday, Friday. My training consists of “class” on Mondays and being in the clinic on Wednesday and Friday for the first 6 weeks then the schedule will change for the last 6 weeks. So far I can set up the machines and get them through test mode, start to work up a patient (still need help calculating the numbers), pre and post nursing assessments (our LPNs can’t assess), and I’m learning to pull needles post treatment). Getting checked off on meds and cannulation (sticking the needles) will come a bit later in the training per the education coordinator. It’s overwhelming since it’s fast paced at times and I learn at a slower pace but I think I’ll get it eventually...well I hope so!

    APRN/APP Manager?

    Hello, I know it’s been a while since you’ve made this post, but I’m curious as to which decision you made since I’m in the same situation. I just finished my MSN in Leadership and I’m torn between getting a DNP in leadership or AGPCNP.

    WGU FNP 2020-2021

    I hope WGU starts a DNP program soon. Or at least a post masters certificate for the FNP program.

    Congrats! I remember seeing that you were interested in dialysis too! I’m glad you decided to take the leap! I don’t start until May 3 but I’ve already accepted the position and the ppw has been started. We can definitely share experiences! Please keep in touch!

    Considering Dialysis Nursing

    I’m in the same position. I’ve been a nurse 4 years and can’t seem to find my niche. I read the threads on here about dialysis and when a position came open at a local clinic I applied. I haven’t started yet but I’m excited! Let us know if you decide to apply!

    Hi everybody! I posted in the past that I was interested in giving dialysis nursing a try. Well I just accepted a position with DCI. I tried long term care but it’s not working out like I though so I decided to finally take the leap and try dialysis. I’m nervous yet excited!
