I am a nursing student who is almost done with my first year, will be graduating next May. I have been offered an extern type position at a hospital for the summer working in their Oncology unit. I was wondering if this would be a good place for me to learn things. I wanted to start in telemetry or med-surg but right now there are no openings on those floors. Any advice you have on oncology nursing would be great. Please be honest. I would like to know the pros and cons.
