We offer you an excellent position in a close-knit nursing team that consists of about 25 colleagues. You will get plenty of opportunities to follow training and to develop yourself.

Our department consists of a polyclinic, a day treatment, a dialysis department, and a nursing department. We focus on highly specialised patient care, patient-related and fundamental research, and training in a multidisciplinary context. We offer various forms of kidney function replacement therapies in the dialysis department, such as centre-haemodialysis, (paediatric) peritoneal dialysis, and home-haemodialysis. We treat patients of all ages who require complex care, such as dialysis after kidney transplantation and plasma filtration. As a department, we are JCI certified, and we work hard on a continuous improvement culture.

You get much satisfaction out of treating chronic patients and can handle acute situations well. You are driven, flexible and work well independently as well as together. You have organisational and problem-solving skills, are stress-resistant and have a constructive and assertive attitude. Preferably you have broad experience with kidney function replacement therapies. Because we are an academic department, you must be enthusiastic about contributing to innovation, scientific research, and training.
