Hi! 
I am planning to apply the position of therapeutic apheresis nursing at Fresenius. I had some experience of TPE and I am very interested in the apheresis filed. Is there anybody currently working at Fresenius as an apheresis nurse? I need some tips of this job!!

I worked outpatient infusion at the hospital for quite a while. Our hospital would contract apheresis nurses at Fersenius. It seemed very interesting, no cases were ever the same. Everything is 1:1 obviously and there is quite a bit of monitoring of vital signs, lab analysis, and trouble shooting lines.

Something to take into consideration though is I know they work A LOT of hours (their regular shift, plus on call). We had one guy that would easily work 70 hours a week (by choice), but he made bank. They also covered many hospitals, so they spent a lot of time traveling. So, if that's something you're interested in, go for it!
