Thank you for visiting this website and for your interest and possible support of our Oncology Nursing Fellowship Program.
My wonderful wife Susan lost her courageous battle with ovarian cancer in 2013. During our challenging journey together in the face of this terrible disease, we witnessed first-hand the invaluable work and compassionate care of Oncology Nurses. Susan was an extraordinary mother, a loving and devoted wife, and a widely-admired and caring friend to many. In addition to being a successful businesswoman and a Master Gardener, she was also an enthusiastic and dedicated volunteer.
In Susan's loving memory and as a tribute to this critical "first line" of caregivers, I have partnered with several leading cancer care Hospitals to establish an Oncology Nursing Fellowship Program for rising senior undergraduate nursing school students. This Summer Intern program provides the student nurse participants with an 8 - 10 week immersion in Oncology Nursing with the objectives of:
- Providing the Fellows with a comprehensive scope of direct learning experiences in all clinical aspects of Oncology Nursing and exposure to "best practices" in compassionate care of cancer patients and their families
- Inspiring and better equipping the participants to pursue a career in this critical field, and in doing so, developing the next generation of Oncology Nurses
- Improving the quality of care of future cancer patients and their families
In time, we plan to further expand this Fellowship program and to also broaden the scope of our combined efforts to support the professional development of aspiring Oncology Nurses.
