Nursing at Sylvester
Oncology nursing is a unique profession; it is an art, a science, and a challenging intellectual discipline. A career at Sylvester will give you the opportunity to become knowledgeable in cancer care, as well as offer the type of compassionate, supportive nursing care you’ve always wanted to provide. And, as a front line member of the Sylvester health care delivery team, you will help improve the lives of your patients every day.
The Nursing Department at Sylvester is continuously working to build upon our successes and achievements. We offer strong leadership, tools, and resources necessary to help our nurses excel in the ever-changing and evolving health care environment.
At Sylvester, we have a unique partnership with the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies, which allows our nurses to have access to the best, most up-to-date nursing education available. We encourage our nurses to continue their education and pursue careers that support our mission of research, education, and patient care. We provide tuition remission and scholarship support to our nurses, our staff, and our students. This is not only a great benefit, but also serves our core values of delivering patient-focused, compassionate care, paired with evidence-based nursing practice to provide our patients with state-of-the-art nursing care.
Sylvester was recently selected as a site for an Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) and Joint Commission breast cancer quality initiative. Funded by the Breast Cancer Fund of National Philanthropic Trust (NPT), our collaborative work with ONS and other cancer centers across the county will contribute a unique perspective to quality cancer care, testing of patient-centered symptom assessment and management measures impacted by evidence-based nursing interventions.
