Well, some of you may have read my post about my dad having lymphoma. I'm actually writing though to ask about your thoughts on new grads going directly into pediatric oncology.
I interviewed and was offered 4 positions in different hospitals ranging from cardiac care unit to labor & delivery. Strangely, the only position that intrigued me was surprisingly peds oncology at Sloan Kettering. The new facility is beautiful and the nurse manager was great and seemed really supportive. They provide a 3 month training program with a preceptor then 1 month alone on days before switching you over to nights.
My only hesitation to be honest is Fear. I know I love kids and would enjoy interacting with them, but I'm afraid that as a clueless new grad (that really isn't even certain of hanging IV's) that it would be too much to handle. What do you all think????
