Melissa Bassis

Nurse Practitioner

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2001 as a unit assistant in the bone marrow transplant unit.

Inspired by the dedication of nurses there, I decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in nursing. With the help of Memorial Sloan Kettering I worked and went to school part-time, and obtained my nursing degree in 2005 – which is when I became a registered nurse in the bone marrow transplant unit. Over the following years I continued to further my education and ultimately earned my Master of Science degree in nursing from Adelphi University in 2011.
