Any Oncology APNs here?

  1. I'm curious, as I'm considering becoming an NP specializing in oncology.

    I initially planned to work in telemetry, then CCU, and then become a cardio ACNP. But my last clinical was on a tele floor, and it was pretty boring. I think that cardiology might be a little limiting for me.

    One of my advisors pointed out that since I have an interest in the psychosocial as well as the medical side of things, maybe I should look at oncology, as it's more complex than cardio and involves a great deal of psychological issues. Which was interesting, as when I was first looking into nursing programs I was focusing on the closely related fields of oncology, pain management, and palliative care.

    So, are there any of you out there?
