    Pros

    Developing relationships with patients and families while keeping high level nursing skills in use.

    Cons

    Sometimes short staffed due to frequent call ins usually could not be helped but put the rest of the staff in hot water.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to keep your rising stars!

    Pros

    Davita is an Excellent place to work. DaVit provides plenty of training and opportunities to grow your talents whether it be in management, leadership, clinically, and personally. They provide Excellent benefits as salaries are competitive with other clinical opportunities. I’ve worked in the hospital setting most of my 21 year nursing career and I have never felt so supported in a work setting ever. Best decision for my career was to say yes to the recruiter about coming to an interview with DaVita.

    Cons

    Just like any management position, the work is constant and at times tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Take the chance and apply and go to the interview!
