Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is an independent, nonprofit, unified adult cancer care and research center that is clinically integrated with UW Medicine, a world leader in clinical care, research and learning. The first National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in the Pacific Northwest, Fred Hutch’s global leadership in bone marrow transplantation, HIV/AIDS prevention, immunotherapy, and COVID-19 vaccines has confirmed our reputation as one of the world’s leading cancer, infectious disease and biomedical research centers. Based in Seattle, Fred Hutch operates eight clinical care sites that provide medical oncology, infusion, radiation, proton therapy, and related services, and network affiliations with hospitals in five states. Together, our fully integrated research and clinical care teams seek to discover new cures for the world’s deadliest diseases and make life beyond cancer a reality.
At Fred Hutch, we believe that the innovation, collaboration, and rigor that result from diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an antiracist organization. We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.
The New-to-Specialty RN role is specifically designed for experienced nurses with no previous nursing experience in adult ambulatory oncology who demonstrate commitment to the vision and mission of SCCA and to the care of cancer patients and their families. New-to-Specialty RNs receive specialized orientation support through the New-to-Specialty RN Fellowship program to assist in their transition to practice. Training will include understanding of various oncology diagnoses and treatment plans/protocols including immunotherapy and bone marrow transplant, competency in chemotherapy and other prescribed supportive treatments, and evaluation of patient’s response to treatment. The New-to-Specialty RN provides patient-centric care and is primarily responsible for nursing assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation as a member of the interdisciplinary care team.
SCCA has a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy, and there are no exceptions for any employee who is patient-facing and/or requires access to SCCA facilities.
Exceptions exist only for employees whose positions are fully remote, with no required access to campus. As a condition of employment, newly hired employees requiring access to campus must provide proof of vaccination before their first day of employment.
