Undergraduate student chosen as oncology student nursing fellow
Elizabeth Johnson '10 was awarded the Carol A. Ghiloni Oncology Nursing Fellowship from Massachusetts General Hospital.
Elizabeth Johnson '10 was awarded the Carol A. Ghiloni Oncology Nursing
Fellowship from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). Johnson will
spend 10 weeks this summer working with a nurse preceptor in the
oncology units of MGH. At the end of the summer, she will present a
research project to the Carol A. Ghiloni selection board about a topic
pertinent to oncology and relating to her summer work.
Through this opportunity, Johnson will gain clinical and observational experience in inpatient and outpatient oncology, including medical/surgical oncology, radiation oncology, the outpatient infusion unit, and the transfusion service. The fellowship is a unique chance for a baccalaureate nursing student to observe the care of patients with cancer across the continuum, and to get a firsthand look at the daily work of an oncology nurse.
