I have worked with Oncology patients for over 13 years, along with other areas, such as L&D, ER, med-surg, corrections and I would never do anything else besides Oncology. My view is, I feel it is a privledge to be allowed to care form someone in their hardest battles of their life and if it turns out , they are not going to make it, I will be there to their end, doing whatever possible to keep them comfortable. You can learn so much medically, for these patients can be extremely high acuity along with their chemo treatments. I agree with other comment, to just precept or spend time on an Oncology floor, you will figure out at that time, if it's for you. Nurses generally, love it or hate it. Good luck to you!!!!
