The one hundred honoree: Carol A. Ghiloni, MSN, RN

Mass General Giving

Oncology nurse Carol Ghiloni has provided care to Mass General patients for more than 45 years. One of the pioneers in oncology at Mass General, Carol was founding nurse director of the hospital’s inpatient oncology unit, a position she held for four decades until her retirement.

Carol started working at Mass General in general medicine in the 60’s and soon became an assistant head nurse and then nurse director. A leader in developing oncology nursing as a specialty here at the hospital, she advocated for a dedicated inpatient unit where nurses could gain expertise in the care of oncology patients. Now serving part time as a clinical educator, Carol is teaching nurses about chemotherapy administration as well as the hospital’s new electronic medication system. The Cancer Center student nurse oncology fellowship program is named for Carol in recognition of her great contribution to oncology nursing.
