Nurse Residency Specialties
The Dana-Farber Nurse Residency Program supports two oncology specialties: Infusion and Clinical Research. Newly licensed nurses are encouraged to apply for the specialty that meets their professional goals. The Residency program is offered in two cohorts, Spring and Fall. The Spring cohort starts in March, with the application window open from November through early January. The Fall cohort starts in September, with the application window open from April through early June.
The Infusion Residency curriculum is structured to provide residents with rich learning experiences in both inpatient and ambulatory settings. Residents will become proficient in a variety of nursing skills, such as IV placements, central venous access devices, and infusion therapy, while practicing in an interdisciplinary team environment promoting relationship-based care. Shadowing experiences are offered with interdisciplinary team members.
Clinical Research Specialty
The Research Residency curriculum is structured to expose residents to fundamental clinical nursing skills, oncology-based care, and clinical 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.
