RN Dialysis

Maxim Healthcare is seeking a Registered Nurse who is looking to give life to patients in an Acute Hospital setting. RNs in this role work autonomously alongside the hospital staff to assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for the critically ill patients.If you haven?t considered Nephrology nursing before, read on as we think that you should. Dialysis Experience IS required, at least 1 year of experience within the last 5 years!

  • 1:1 Patient Care. Deliver acute hemodialysis to in-patients with chronic kidney disease, as well as patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and transplant. Average Patient to Nurse Ratio is 2:1 or 1:1.?

  • Patient education.? Whether this is the first or a blip in their chronic treatment, our RNs are experts in educating our patients and families.?
