As a dialysis nurse you treat chronic patients several times a week for a longer period of time. You often build up an intensive relationship with these patients.
In addition, there is the dynamics of acute care in emergency dialysis and outside dialysis (in other departments, such as intensive care, medium care, recovery or cardiac monitoring), which is about 20% of your work. This diversity makes the work extra challenging. Your shift consists of a variety of activities including nursing, working with technical equipment, advising on nutrition and coaching in dealing with illness.
As a team member you actively contribute to the quality development of our nursing care. You will have plenty of opportunities to follow professional training courses.
The hospital offers you a nice place in a close-knit nursing team with about 25 colleagues. The hospital has day shifts (from 07:30 to 16:00) and evening shifts (from 12:30 to 21:00), both on weekdays and on weekends. The certified dialysis nurses work on-call services for acute dialysis after the evening shift and on weekends. We work closely together in our team and are self-organizing as much as possible.
