Care Dimensions welcomes new nurses to residency program
Care Dimensions recently announced the addition of six new nurses to its Hospice Nurse Residency Program, which provides intensive training to nurses who are new to hospice and palliative care.
Among the newest hospice nurse residents are Ashley Farese, of Lynn; Edoualda Chrispin-Lovaincy, of Medford; Renee Giglio, of Peabody; Suzanne Klint, of West Roxbury; Annmarie Lally, of Haverhill; and Rick Healy, of Melrose. They will be specially trained to work as nurse case managers for the nonprofit.
In 2015, Care Dimensions received a Massachusetts Healthcare Workforce Transformation Fund Training Grant to develop a hospice nurse residency program geared to both new nursing graduates and experienced nurses looking to work in the hospice field for the first time. This initial grant funding allowed for the successful graduation of 12 hospice nurse residents. Care Dimensions has continued to demonstrate its commitment to staff education by funding the program, beyond the initial training grant, bringing the number of nurses benefitting from the program to 22.
