Care Dimensions' innovative nurse residency program introduces new nursing graduates and experienced nurses to the field of hospice and palliative care. Nurses develop their hospice expertise through a combination of classroom education, field visits and patient care with the mentorship of a preceptor.
We are actively recruiting for our first 2024 class, which starts in February. New grad nurses must have their Massachusetts RN or LPN license by January 31, 2024. The application deadline is January 10, 2024. View the hospice nurse residency program flyer.
