Our chronic-care nursing positions appeal to nurses who are looking for a more stable work environment than many nursing positions allow. Our nurses work regular schedules, often four shifts per week with a rotating Saturday shift, and most of our offices are closed on Sundays.
In our acute-care settings, nurses have to be ready to handle emergency situations as they arise, with night call and more varied shifts. These positions often appeal to nurses with an ICU background or those looking to gain experience in these situations.
If you prefer to further your skills in nurse education, we offer opportunities in this area as well. Our nurses take the lead role in instructing patients and caregivers who are going to perform in-home dialysis.
Our team includes both certified and clinical dialysis technicians. We offer in-depth, hands-on training for technicians to get you the experience you need for the advanced technology involved in dialysis care. We’ll also help you obtain your certification program required by the state of Michigan.
Because of the in-depth training we provide, which is unmatched by other providers in our area, we require our dialysis technicians to stay with us for a minimum of two years. However, we do offer a $10,000 grant for technicians who are interested in pursuing a degree and career in nursing, which is in addition to Henry Ford Health System’s tuition reimbursement.
Dialysis assistants partner with a dialysis nurse or clinical technician during patient care. As a dialysis assistant, you will:
- Clean and sanitize dialysis stations
- Help guide patients to and from dialysis stations
- Take inventory of and manage supplies
As one of our social workers, you’ll work with patients and their loved ones on concerns relating to their dialysis care. This can involve:
- Educating them on kidney diseases
- Helping them overcome challenges relating to referrals and resources in the community
- Guiding them through emotional and social issues
Dietitians play an integral role in our patients’ care. As one of our dietitians, you’ll help patients create customized food plans that meet their renal dietary needs as well as their food preferences. You’ll also work with referring doctors, rehabilitation facilities and other professionals to maintain our patients’ continuity of care.
