Job Description:

  • Educator - In addition to training patients to perform their own treatments and giving them the confidence to address complications, PD nurses also educate prospective patients on the potential benefits of peritoneal dialysis and engage physicians and in-center nurses to ensure patients are making an active choice in their dialysis treatment.
  • Autonomy - You p rovide comprehensive patient care in an independent setting and will be responsible for customizing care for each patient to help them stay healthy and successful doing their therapy at home. You multitask in myriad ways between educating existing and prospective patients, seeing them in the clinic, and collaborating with physician partners. PD patients and physicians rely on you to guide their therapy, and the joy comes in witnessing how your care impacts patients' lives.Full vaccination against COVID-19 or a medical/religious exemption is required.
