The one hundred honoree: Susan M. Finn, RN, MSN, AOCNS

Mass General Giving

Susan M. Finn, RN, MSN, AOCNS, is an advanced oncology certified clinical nurse specialist in the Adult Infusion Unit at Mass General Cancer Center. Her role includes patient education, chemotherapy administration and symptom management, activities that she performs in collaboration with the unit’s oncologists and nurse practitioners.

A colleague who later became her patient says, “As a coworker, Susan always knew the right thing to say. Susan is extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful and insightful, and her way of phrasing things is illuminating to her audience. Now, as a patient, I find that Susan is there for me with her nonjudgmental presence, and she works beautifully with my primary nurse and my other caregivers. The great harmony among the members of the whole Yawkey 8 team makes each patient feel safe and comfortable. Yet there is something intangible about Susan’s attentive treatment that always leaves me feeling enlightened, calm and cared for after she visits me.”
