Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, New Graduate Nurse Oncology Residency Program

The Nurse Residency program is being introduced in Oncology beginning on March 7, 2011 and in the Critical Care arena on April 4, 2011.

The Nurse Residency program is the latest program developed by the Norman Knight Nursing Center for Clinical & Professional Development. The Nurse Residency program was conceived, designed and built, in part to support the growth in inpatient beds with the opening of the new Lunder Building.

  • The Nurse Residency program is being launched to coincide with the opening of the Lunder Building, in celebration of our Bicentennial year as we prepare to step into the 3rd century of nursing practice at MGH.
  • The Nurse Residency is a 960-hour program, composed of RN Orientation, Practice-Based Orientation and Clinical Immersion under the supervision of the Residency Faculty, and includes formative and summative outcome evaluation and measurement.
  • The innovative cornerstone of the Nurse Residency program is the Residency Faculty, comprised of the Clinical Nurse Specialist in oncology, critical care and other areas involved with patient care.
  • The Nurse Residency program is specifically designed to provide a CNS faculty-guided, mentored-relationship, experience for newly licensed nurses as they transition from student nurse to staff nurse.
  • The Residency Faculty will be supported and assisted by Nurse Partners.

Nurse Partners are staff nurses and other members of the interdisciplinary team who will support the professional development of the Nurse Resident by sharing wisdom, knowledge, experience, guidance and other forms of knowledge transfer and competency development.
