The establishment of rotational nursing posts for practitioners wishing to develop skills in cancer and palliative care nursing is one possible answer to the problems of recruitment and retention of oncology nurses today. It also provides clinically relevant education and training. This paper reports on a seminar where four centres from the south of England offering rotation schemes met to exchange ideas and form the basis of a network of people interested in such initiatives. This event suggested that rotations might contribute successfully to the education and training of clinically skilled cancer nurses.
