The Leader in Hospice and Palliative Care Certification

Providing the highest quality hospice and palliative care takes clinical skill and expertise, that’s why we place a strong emphasis on achieving hospice and palliative care certification. Care Dimensions has been named the 2021 Employer of the Year by the Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center. Physicians, nurse practitioners and registered nurses are required to obtain their certification; social workers and hospice aides are encouraged to do so. We offer multiple preparation classes and support staff in obtaining this certification. Our high level of certified clinical staff is one of the things that sets our program and staff above others and helps us provide the best quality of care to patients and their families.

Tuition Reimbursement

We have tuition reimbursement for both full- and part-time employees for job-related degree programs. We also award up to three scholarship grants yearly.

Reduced Tuition Through Regis Partnership

Our preferred partnership with Regis College gives Care Dimensions employees access to discounted graduate programs with flexible formats designed for working students. Download the flyer for more information.

Student Loan Pay Down and Refinancing Programs

By partnering with Gradifi, we offer $50/month to help benefit eligible employees with a qualified student loan pay off the debt more quickly. Our partnership also includes a student loan refinancing program with access to some of the lowest interest rates available AND provides a $300 bonus that’s applied to the employee’s loan balance.  Both of these features are available to any employee working 30+ hours week and with 90 days of service.

Hospice Nurse Residency Program

In 2015, Care Dimensions launched a nurse residency program to introduce nurses to the field of hospice and palliative care. Developed in partnership with Regis College’s Nursing Program, this innovative hands-on training program is offered to RNs with a minimum of two years of experience and who are new to the field of hospice and palliative care. Initially funded in part through a Massachusetts Healthcare Workforce Transformation Fund Training Grant, the program helps nurses develop their hospice expertise through a combination of didactic training and a controlled case load of patients.

Care Dimensions is dedicated to educating the next generation of physicians, nurses, social workers and chaplains. As a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School and clinical training site for the Harvard Palliative Care Fellowship Program, Care Dimensions is proud to provide education, mentoring and in-depth experience with the full hospice indisciplinary care team to 12 physician fellows every year. Additionally, we provide valuable experience for nursing students and interns in social work, music theraply and child life.
