Greenwich Hospital hosts oncology nursing fellowship program graduation

Greenwich Hospital hosts oncology nursing fellowship program graduation

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Two nursing students from Fairfield University graduated today from the Susan D. Flynn Oncology Nursing Fellowship Program at Greenwich Hospital.

Hannah Dahlke and Nick Mudry are among 35 oncology nursing Flynn fellows at 15 leading hospitals nationwide to be graduating this year. The fellowship program was first piloted at Greenwich Hospital in 2014.

During the eight-week program at Greenwich Hospital, the two nursing fellows shadowed seasoned nurses and served as integral hands-on members of the cancer care team.

Frederick C. Flynn, Jr. of Stamford founded the Susan D. Flynn Oncology Fellowship Program in memory of his late wife. The fellowship program grew out of his experience with Greenwich Hospital's Palliative Care Program in 2013, when his wife was in the final stages of her three year battle with ovarian cancer.

"Thanks to the outstanding staff and enthusiastic program mentors at Greenwich Hospital who enabled these talented students to learn so much clinically and academically about oncology nursing," said Flynn.
