Oncology RN's face one of the most rewarding and also one of the most challenging fields in nursing. The Oncology RN must care for patients during their most intimate and difficult moments. The RN is the one at the patient's bedside to educate and encourage them. When the patient needs help the Oncology RN is the one that has to be there for them. The RN is the patient's first line of communication and helps coordinate many aspects of care through the many treatments for cancer.
The Oncology Nurse may administer chemotherapy, monitor patient progress and treat the symptoms. Educating the patient and their family is also a large part of this job.
