Oncology nurses care for, monitor and educate cancer patients. They work one-on-one with patients in the clinics, hospital. Oncology nurses need to complete diploma, Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) or Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs and earn licensure as registered nurses (RNs). They can also opt to earn master’s degrees and national certifications in oncology nursing.
Oncology nurses care for critically or chronically ill cancer patients. They administer chemotherapy, implement new methods of symptom treatment and monitor their patients’ progress. Oncology nurses also create a supportive environment.
A large portion of an oncology nurse’s job is educating cancer patients about treatment options, procedures and particularities of the disease, which requires that she constantly educate herself and keep up with new treatment methods. Oncology nurses must be prepared to work with patients who have been diagnosed with life-threatening conditions. The occupation requires emotional stability to help patients and their families work through the treatment process and cope with death if treatment fails.
