Ever since I've started nursing school
I've always been drawn to Oncology Nursing. With my previous job in the hospital I've had the opportunity to meet nurses on the oncology unit and cancer center and talk to patients and I knew for sure that that is what I wanted to go into.
I graduated a few months ago, passed my NCLEX 1 month ago and with a lot of luck landed a job in a teaching hospital in a large city on their Oncology/ hemotology floor! I'm so excited to start my career here! However it's safe to say that nerves are kicking in and I definitely realize that this first year is going to be full of a lot of learning and stress!
Is there anything you would recommend a new grad doing before their first day on an oncology unit?
Also, is their any advice you would give a new grad on the floor?
thank you guys in advance!
