Dialysis Management Clinics (DMC) operates three small nurse led clinics that focus on chronic disease management for patients with end stage renal failure. We are currently looking for registered nurses interested in working at their full scope of practice as community hemodialysis nurses. DMC employs both primary and associate nurses at its three locations (Markham, Pickering and Peterborough). Given that the need and availability of RN positions at DMC fluctuate, we encourage all interested applicants to submit resumes for either or both associate and primary registered nurses positions. All applicant resumes are kept on file and contacted when positions become available.
As of Jan-Feb 2017, there is a need for primary nurses at our Pickering and Markham location as well as associate nurses at our Peterborough location.
Primary nurses are defined as RNs working 6 – 12 shifts per month. The number of shifts per month are determined based on need and candidate availability/interest.
Associate nurses are defined as RNs working 1 – 5 shifts per month. The number of shifts per month are determined based on need and candidate availability/interest.
All RN shifts at DMC are between 10.5 to 11.5 hours in length. Hours of operations are typically 7:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Saturday. In Pickering Tuesdays and Thursdays operate from 11:00am to 10:00pm.
