Hello Oncology nurses!
I just graduated my CNA program in August and amazingly enough, I was recently hired for a position on the oncology floor at my local hospital.
I have been researching Oncology, Oncology Nursing, and working on the Oncology floor pretty extensively since before my interview and I have seen some great replies and resources but I got a little overwhelmed with all the different websites, topics, and posts so I decided to go ahead and make my own topic for the heck of it and ask both nurses & CNA's some questions!
Here are some of my questions for you (feel free to answer all or just 1):
* What do you expect from the CNA's working with you/ what makes a great CNA in your opinion?
* In your experience, how did a CNA working with you make your job easier/ help you the best possible way?
* Do you recommend any books or websites to better understand the field and the patients?
* What are some tips/ advice for working on this floor?
* What are some tips and advice in general?
* What is your favorite part of working on the Oncology floor? What's your least favorite part?
* What are some things you have learned working on the Oncology floor?
Thank you so much!
