Tracy Krimmel, MSN, AOCN, APRN-BC, Nurse Manager, Adult Clinic Staff, the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, explains the benefit of having an oncology practice fellowship program.

Krimmel says the idea for the fellowship program developed because of changes within the cancer institute and nursing education. Because the cancer center has grown, more staff is needed. The cancer center also is NCI-designated, and the staff is required to have specialized backgrounds; however, many schools of nursing have gotten away from specialty practices, Krimmel says.

This fellowship is designed to fill that gap, using both didactic and clinical components to help educate nurses in the oncology specialty.
