Oncology Nursing

An oncology nurse is a nurse that specialises in providing care to cancer patients. Beyond a conventional baccalaureate nursing education may provide, these nurses require additional qualifications and cancer clinical experience. Oncology nursing care is defined as providing for oncology patients' requirements throughout their illness, including adequate screenings and other prevention efforts, symptom management, care to maintain as much normal function as possible, and supporting measures at the end of life.

Oncology nurses, like any Registered Nurse have a large variety of settings they can work in. Oncology nurses can work inpatient settings such as hospitals, outpatient settings, in hospice services, or in physician offices. There are a variety of specialties such as radiation, surgery, paediatric, or gynaecologic. Oncology nurses have advanced knowledge of assessing the client’s status and from this assessment will help the multi-disciplinary medical team to develop a treatment plan.
