My name is Leslie, and I am new here.
I have just been accepted into a 15 month LPN program, and classes begin on August 26th. I am excited to finally be pursuing my dream of being a nurse!
I am very interested in working in Oncology when I graduate. I am curious to know if working in Oncology is a possibility as an LPN. One of the directors at my nursing school said that LPNs are utilized on Oncology floors in my region, but she did not say in what capacity. I was also wondering what, if any, additional training would be required to make my goal of working with cancer patients a reality.
Thank you for the advice and input. I look forward to learning from the experienced nurses here!!
