Jason Kiaffas, MSN, ACNP-BC, AOCNP

Radiation Oncology Nurse Practitioner

Jason is a board-certified nurse practitioner who joined the Pacific Cancer Institute in April 2021.

While he graduated in 1996 with a master’s degree in health care administration, Jason always desired to work in a clinical setting caring for patients. At the age of 30, he returned to school to become a registered nurse. After approximately 8 years experience as an ICU nurse, Jason attended Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, where he obtained a master’s degree in advanced practice nursing in 2011. Since that time, Jason has worked as a nurse practitioner in various disciplines including ICU, trauma, and neurosurgery. He relocated to Maui in 2016 and has spent the last three years working as a nurse practitioner in Maui Health System’s medical oncology/hematology department. During that time, he obtained certification as an advanced oncology nurse practitioner through the Oncology Nursing Society.

By far, Jason feels that his most rewarding clinical experience has been caring for patients diagnosed with cancer. As a transplant from the mainland, Jason considers it a blessing to have the opportunity to care for cancer patients on the beautiful island of Maui.

Jason calls himself a “life-long learner” and strives to provide the best care to his patients through continued reading and education. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with friends and family, cooking, and doing CrossFit.
