Working as a nurse

Why choose dialysis?

You decided to work in dialysis or you are looking to change your area of practice

Professional value

Starting your nursing career in dialysis is a meaningful way to ensure that you gain professional value right from the beginning. In most countries dialysis nurses are highly valued and sought after by recruiters not only for dialysis but other nursing jobs. When fully trained, a dialysis nurse can work in any dialysis environment almost anywhere in the world.

Job content & skills

As a dialysis nurse you will have the opportunity to use all your nursing skills and you will greatly enhance your competence in dealing with people. You will be working in a supportive environment where technology and tools allow you to better fulfil the crucial role you are playing in patient care. 
In dialysis units, nurses work in teams which are able to organise their work independently.

Training support

In NephroCare, we believe that continuous education is very important. Your training starts on the first day. With our Fundamental Dialysis Nursing Training Programme (accredited by EDTNA/ERCA) you are assigned to a mentor, which will guide you through your first three months and continue to offer you support after this period. You will receive a great deal of practical training and theory courses to build your know-how. As you advance, your education continues with suitable training.

Work-life balance

Working in a dialysis unit allows you to optimally organise your family life. You will be working in a predictable shift system, where you have a much higher flexibility in your schedule compared to other nursing jobs. There is no work on Sundays and no night shifts.

Working in a team

The major staff group in a dialysis unit are nurses. Thus, they rely on each other and share support whenever needed. Dialysis nurses also cooperate with other professionals, which are part of the dialysis unit such as physicians, psychologists and social workers, nutritionists. It is really a multidisciplinary team.

Impact on patients’ lives

You get to know your patients and care for them, creating a long term relationship. You become important to them and you can greatly contribute to their well-being. And you get to see the results of the good care that you are offering.

Quality & safety

As a highly experienced dialysis provider, we have very well established procedures and standards. You will work in a well-organised environment right from the beginning.

Our activity is based on standardized processes, clear roles and an excellent organisation of the shift system & tasks. You will feel welcome in our environment.

There are many ways in which you can develop your career in NephroCare. You can specialise in data & quality management, hygiene, training & mentorship and you can advance in hierarchy in your dialysis centre and in headquarter positions. Most of our nursing management roles are performed by nurses who were selected from our clinics. And if you decide to ever change your employment, having worked in NephroCare is a strong professional credential.

Engagement in scientific community

We believe that all nurses should share expertise and participate to scientific progress of the profession. This is why we support participation in the EDTNA/ERCA International Conferences of all our nurses who are taking an active role in scientific activities. If you were participating in the congress, you have probably seen our posters and sessions already.
