Why did you choose oncology? Why do you stay? :heartbeat
- I chose oncology because I am a 4 yr breast cancer survivor.
I had great oncology nurses.
I wanted to do something with the rest of my life besides waiting to see if I would survive 5 yrs, 10 yrs etc..
So now, I am fresh out of nursing school and starting my career as a brand-new oncology nurse!
Wish me luck!
- And I wish you the very best. I also had lumpectomy, chemo, and radiation. Cancer sucks.
- And I am here if you need me.

- Aug 3, '12 by sandy61Quote from Debilpn23This is great to hear I manage an oncology unit, and almost everyone of my nurses have a loved one going thru cancer. This just makes you a better nurse, because you can relate to the patient. Good luck.Roughmatch Wish you the best of luck.
I myself am going for treatment for breast cancer. Had a lumpectomy and am now doing radiation.
- Aug 4, '12 by Jingles39I'm not an oncology nurse yet, but I cannot think of another specialty where my heart belongs more than in oncology. I lost my mom at the age of 47 to breast cancer and lost my dad at the age of 58 to lung cancer.
- Aug 8, '12 by mdshaluI chose oncology as their are limited cancer hospital in my country. I thought it's a emerging scope of nursing. But my bad luck now i m having tough time to search a job related to my field due to limited hospitals. in addition nurses are paid less and moreover any non specialized nurses can work on it.
