At Moffitt Cancer Center, we recognize the importance of a smooth transition from nursing student to practicing clinician. Our goal for our newly licensed registered nurses is to provide an environment that prepares them to function safely, accurately and compassionately. We have developed an Oncology Nurse Residency Program to facilitate the transition and promote the adoption of oncology as a specialty practice.  

When you're part of Moffitt, you're part of something greater.
