Come join the Stanford Health Care Oncology & BMT Family
Our nurses attend conferences and educational events to meet with other BMT & Oncology nurses to gain insights and build a supportive network of those working in the field who may be able to offer something they hadn’t thought of before. Our nurses are encouraged to engage in advanced practice education, evidence-based practice improvement projects as well as becoming nurse leaders through workshops. Their fellow nurses on the team are celebrated every month for the work that they do with mini celebrations, outings outside of the hospital and staff retreats. They help train new graduates starting in our residency program by taking them under their wing to show them everything there is to know.

Discover Opportunities in Nursing Research


Some of Silicon Valley’s brightest scientific minds are at the Stanford Cancer Institute and the Stanford Medicine Cancer Center. Medical discoveries and clinical advances happen here. Our physicians and scientists work every day to improve cancer prevention, detection, and care. We offer advanced diagnostics, the latest treatment technologies and techniques, and pioneering therapies in development through clinical trials. 

Our Nursing Research roles are a way for Clinical Nurses to act as supplemental staffing.  The Nurses in this department will either provide care to patients on a given unit where a trial is occurring so that unit based Nurses can implemental the trial, or they will be assigned to the unit as the Nurse implementing the trial.  




Our Oncology Staff Loves Stanford Health Care

"I have been with Stanford Health Care (SHC) for the past 19 years, all within oncology Nursing.  My roles have been as a staff nurse, nurse coordinator, Assistant Patient Care Manager, and currently as Patient Care Manager.   I feel there is no better place to serve as a nurse than here at SHC. The environment and teamwork throughout our unit is amazing, and it can be challenging because we take care of Oncology patients who are hospitalized from weeks to months at a time. The compassion, empathy, resilience and teamwork is what keeps me here.  It is like a second family; we spend so much time working together helping our colleagues through challenging and rewarding times.  We care for each other as much as we care for our patients."

I’ve had the honor to work at Stanford in Oncology for the past 16 years. I fell into oncology when I first started nursing in the US, and I’ve never looked back. Oncology nursing is a special field of nursing and not everyone can be an oncology nurse, just like not everyone can be an ICU nurse. I started off my nursing career at Stanford as a bedside RN. Within 2 years I was a charge RN and then a preceptor. I then held the role of a unit educator for approx. 8 years. I held the assistant manager role for 5 years and I’ve had the privilege and honor to run an oncology unit for the last 2 years. The relationships we form with our oncology patients is very unique. They are like family to us. Our chemotherapy patients are with us for at least 6 months so we really have an opportunity to know them as a person. We individualize the care to meet the needs of the patient and their caregivers. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t learn something new from a patient. Cancer patients make us humble and grounded, they make us more resilient. Team work is an important aspect of the care we provide. This is not a job that you can do on your own.
