Nurses can be found in many different roles at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. Our nurses are partners, decision-makers, researchers — and life-changers. Our nurses work with leading-edge science, which offers unparalleled opportunities for career growth.
Advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) serve as important members of the care team. As advanced practice providers, Fred Hutch's ARNPs work with physicians and nurses in specific disease groups, in infusion areas and with specialty care services to guide treatment plans and provide supportive care to oncology patients.
Nurses in the Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) program support patients who are assigned to a team based on their diagnosis and type of transplant. BMT team nurses work closely with the entire transplant team, which is made up of physicians, advanced practice providers, pharmacists, registered dietitians, social workers and many others. They follow patients during inpatient and outpatient treatment, triage symptoms, answer patient questions and help coordinate care for patients who are receiving allogeneic transplants, autologous transplants or long-term follow-up care.
Nurses provide a variety of supportive and specialty care services at Fred Hutch that contribute to the overall care of oncology patients. These specialty service departments include Supportive and Palliative Care, Apheresis, Clinical Trials, the Wellness Clinic, Radiation Oncology, Procedure Suite, Alliance Lab and Transfusion Services.
Clinical nurse coordinators in the general oncology and heme/heme malignancy clinics work closely with physicians, advanced practice providers and supportive care services to support patients within a particular disease group. They triage symptoms, answer patient questions, assist with procedures and help coordinate care from the patient’s very first visit throughout their cancer journey.
Nurses working in the Bezos Family Immunotherapy Clinic provide a range of care to patients who are receiving immunotherapy treatments. Some nurses in this clinic provide hands-on care to patients by administering chemotherapies and immunotherapies, providing supportive care and assisting with bedside procedures. Other nurses work closely with physicians and advanced practice providers to coordinate care, triage symptoms over the phone and answer patient questions. In both roles, nurses function as part of an integrated team to deliver seamless care to immunotherapy patients.
Infusion nurses administer chemotherapy, blood products and other medications and treatments prescribed by the care team for a wide variety of oncologic diagnoses. Fred Hutch infusion nurses work closely with physicians, advanced practice providers, clinical nurse coordinators and other clinical support staff to ensure continuity of care for all patients.
Nurses contribute to many non-clinical departments at Fred Hutch, using their training and expertise to inform the education, patient care, quality improvement and safety of frontline staff. These departments include Research; Quality & Regulatory; Research, Scholarship & Program Development; Nursing Education; Employee Health & Safety; and Infection Prevention.
