Hi, I'm Jane, from Hertfordshire UK.
I'm just applying to start an access to nursing course (been planning that step for a year now - had to wait for daughter to settle into full time school first).
I am v.interested in going into oncology nursing but am unsure of the 'route' to do this as yet.
My mum was a cancer survivor for over 20 years before she lost her battle and I guess growing up with cancer in the family and being around hospitals etc so much has left an impression (a good one despite it all).
I have been considering a form of nursing for years, and have really only realised my leaning to oncology in the last 12 mths (husband was a little surprised when I first mentioned it).
Anyway, I hope to be studying at Oaklands College for the first year then Hertfordshire University (Hatfield) for the 3 following years. scary stuff 4 years ahead of me planned!
