Dialysis Centers of Northwest Arkansas (DCNA) is committed to improving the quality of life and providing the best care for patients with acute and chronic renal disease. We are looking for a Registered Nurse (RN) to join our team and help us grow our Home Dialysis Department! The Dialysis Treatment Team consists of Board Certified Nephrologists, Registered Nurses, Dietitians, Social Workers, and Certified Clinical Hemodialysis Technicians.

Home Dialysis RNs work general clinic hours, Monday through Friday from 8:00 4:30 with weekends off. Our Home Dialysis RNs work in the clinic setting and train patients (and/or care partners) how to perform Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) or Home Hemodialysis (HHD). Home visits to the patients house are limited, typically only once during initial training and annually after this. RNs focus primarily on training the patient to ensure their success when they start to complete their treatments independently at home.
