Work where every moment matters.
Every day, over 30,000 Hartford HealthCare colleagues come to work with one thing in common: Pride in what we do, knowing every moment matters here.  We invite you to become part of Connecticut’s most comprehensive healthcare network.  

Hartford Hospital is one of the largest and most respected teaching hospitals in New England. We are a Level 1 Trauma Center that provides cutting edge treatment to its patients. This is made possible by being home to the largest robotic surgery center in the Northeast and the Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation (CESI), one of the most-advanced medical simulation training centers in the world. When hospitals cannot provide the advanced care, expertise and new treatment options their patients require, they turn to us.

The Susan D. Flynn Oncology Nursing Fellowship program is intended to help stimulate the career interest and foster the professional development of potential Oncology Nurses. The program is focused on the critically important field of oncology nursing. The Fellowship will enhance the student’s core clinical education through direct observation of oncology patient care and exposure to related patient care duties and services. Focus will be on the integral role of the oncology nurse on the inter-disciplinary healthcare team.  There will be additional opportunities to attend internal educational programs and meetings with cancer program leadership that will provide additional learning experiences for the student nurse.

Program Scope: The Fellowship program includes a comprehensive scope of direct observational and learning experiences, including potential exposure to:

  • Oncology Nursing (roles/responsibilities, applied practice, career opportunities):  acute med/onc, ICU, OR & Procedural as well as pediatric oncology

(Experience will include principles of patient care, treatment plans, key policies/procedures, patient education)

  • Nursing leadership opportunities:  shared governance council, champion groups

  • Medical Oncology, Infusion Services & Radiation Oncology
  • Home Hospice Services
  • Navigation
  • Interdisciplinary team:  Physical Therapy, Integrative Medicine, Dietician, Spiritual Care, Social Services

The student nurse will be required to complete an “evidence-based practice” oncology project. Support and guidance for the experience will be provided by the program director.  The project presentation will take place at the completion of the program to the oncology healthcare team, nursing and program leadership.


Program Schedule: The program will span eight (8) weeks in length, from June 5, 2023 through July 31, 2023. The schedule will include 8 and 12 hour shifts; the daily schedule may vary during the week to allow for varied clinical experiences.
