Hello I am a graduate nurse and I am undecided where to start off at first in my career. I would like to go into oncology but will it be in my best interest to do a year in med/surg before going into oncology? Any advice will be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Hi, my name is Chiara, and I'm an Italian student nurse, and I'm sure I want to work in an Oncologic ward, when I finish University...
I don't think you need another year of school...You can start working in an onc ward and studing by youself some books about oncology (the best Italian book is " Medic Oncology", by Belladonna: all our oncologists have studied on it)... But on the other way, I think that if you want to know more, that is a really good thing, you can go on study and doing another year.
Can I ask you a question?: " Why have you decided to work in an Onc ward?
Is there a particular motivation, a particular event of your life that has lead you in making this decision?"
I'll really thank you if you answer me!!!!
Thank in advance, Chiara
