The new-to-specialty residency program is designed for experienced nurses who demonstrate commitment to the vision and mission of SCCA and to the care of cancer patients and their families. The primary focus of the new-to-specialty residency is to support experienced nurses in their transition to the specialty of oncology. Training will include understanding of various oncology diagnoses and treatment plans/protocols including immunotherapy and bone marrow transplant, competency in chemotherapy and other prescribed supportive treatments, and evaluation of patient’s response to treatment. The new-to-specialty registered nurse provides patient-centric care and is primarily responsible for nursing assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation as a member of the interdisciplinary care team.
