Q: What is it like working as a Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN)?

March 2015
"AM I getting the correct salary."
Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN):
Hang in there.
February 2019
Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN):
-DPC (patient to staff ratio): The PCT's are overworked and spread thin. Unless your state has specific regulations for patient to tech ratio, FA's (facility administrators) will often be pressured into sending Techs home at the 1st opportunity. As a RN, I find myself constantly touting off "patient safety" warnings that are in conflict to DPC. -Females, particularly PCTs, are paid less for the same work/level of experience/value to the company than their male counterparts. There seems to be a Good Ol Boy culture. Worse yet and tragic, is that many of the women in upper management seem to get off on marginalizing their female subordinates. -Healthcare coverage is overpriced and has high deductibles. If your spouse has an insurance plan, chances are you're better off using that one. -Stock benefit is nice. You can purchase DaVita stock @ a 15% discount and it's performing well. No monetary incentives for working long or later night shifts. Eg: Fresenius adds a % for shifts > 12 hrs and after a certain time. -Annual pay raises are a joke. Unfortunately, the only way to get paid a rate in alignment to your value is to "company hop," as in strategically switching companies every couple of years and negotiating your starting salary. Imagine all of money the companies would save if they simply provided adequate raises. -PTO seems to be one of the few competitive benefits. -Lack of quality ongoing education. Most is performed online through next to useless Star Learning video
