    In general, schools do not offer specific pediatric oncology experience. If you go to a school close to a free-standing children's hospital, you may get to do a clinical (pediatrics or preceptorship) on a pediatric oncology floor but that's honestly the best you could hope for in school. You probably need to be an RN to work pediatric oncology and will very likely need a BSN.
