Nurse Residency Specialties
The Dana-Farber Nurse Residency Program supports two oncology specialties: Infusion and Research. Newly licensed nurses are encouraged to apply for the specialty that meets their professional goals. Annually, applications open in May and the residency program starts in September.
The Infusion Residency curriculum, in partnership with the University of Massachusetts, Boston, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, supports the transition of newly licensed registered nurses to staff nurse roles at Dana-Farber. This program works toward increasing diversity in the oncology nursing workforce at Dana-Farber and in Boston, by identifying nurses with experience and commitment in working with diverse populations and within health equity. Applicants to this specialty must be graduates from the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
The Research Residency curriculum is structured to expose residents to fundamental clinical nursing skills, oncology-based care, and research nursing competencies. The residents complete clinical rotations in inpatient oncology, ambulatory oncology, and clinical research. To supplement their clinical rotations, residents are provided a wide variety of interdisciplinary shadowing experiences and professional development opportunities.
