About Nursing

Care for a community that cares for you.
You want to be the best that you can be — a leader, a team player and a caregiver. You’re dedicated to advocating for the people you care about most, and you thrive on connection and compassion. At the same time, you bring your whole self to everything you do, sharing your experiences and passions with others, whether it’s volunteering, traveling or rooting for the Red Sox. 

At Tufts Medicine, you’ll be part of a game-changing community that truly cares. Here, we’re committed to an inclusive and antiracist workplace, where everyone has the tools to thrive. You’ll work in the environment that works best for you, choosing between three hospitals, dozens of clinics and hospice or home care sites. 

But don’t just take our word for it. Our programs have earned accolades and honors at the regional and national level, including:

  • Lowell General Hospital has achieved Magnet® recognition from the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® for excellence in nursing three times: in 2010, 2015 and 2020.
  • ​​​​​​​Tufts Medical Center achieved Magnet® recognition in 2022.
  • Newsweek recognized Tufts Medical Center on their World’s Best Hospitals list in 2022.
  • In 2022, Tufts Medicine Care at Home won an Innovation Award from the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts for its Remote Patient Monitoring program.

"There is an indescribable bond, respect and strong upper leadership that is unique to the Tufts Medicine system. I couldn‘t have worked anywhere else during the pandemic; everybody has your back. Here, your teammates become your second family. Once you're part of such an amazing culture, you're hooked. There's so much room to grow for anyone who feels burned out or needs a change.“
Danielle Morgan, RN, BSN
Clinical Supervisor of Maternal Child Health, Tufts Medicine Care at Home
"I wanted to help a vulnerable population, to be there to provide support for someone when they are at their lowest point. My colleagues and I are on the same page. We all hope to make a difference.”
Rachel Leung, RN Inpatient Floor Nurse, MelroseWakefield Hospital
"As a former pilot in the United States Army, flying helicopters afforded me the opportunity to meet many people, including nurses and medics. I was drawn to their efforts to provide the best possible care to those valiantly serving our country. It's challenging, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."
Michael Signori, RN Operating Room Nurse, Tufts Medical Center
"I helped take care of my mom when she had cancer. For five years, I changed her dressings and got her anything she needed. Before she passed, she told me I would make a great nurse. Now, patients come in every week and I build relationships with them. They become like family. I think my mother would be very proud."
Emily Thayer, RN Oncology Nurse, Lowell General Hospital
