In 1945, Nursing Administrator Ethel Chandler formally organized the Department of Nursing at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center with 61 nurses under her direction. Today, the Department of Nursing boasts a dynamic and engaged staff of over 600 administrators, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, hospital clinical assistants and clinical support assistants.

The Department of Nursing promotes an environment whereby each patient's human dignity and human rights are recognized and respected.
