When I first started school I swore up and down that I didn't want anything in Peds, LTC and Oncology. L&D wasn't my top choice, but would be tolerable. I wanted ED, Psych or OR. Then during my second semester of NS my mom was diagnosed with Stage IV Non Hodgkins. I spent my summer sitting with her through Chemo, Radiation and IT chemo. I asked a lot of questions and did a lot of research, and ultimately fell in love with Oncology. I did my senior Practicum on a leukemia floor and enjoyed every min with the patients. Unfortunately I could not get a job in oncology after graduating, so I took a position on a sub acute rehab unit. Definitely not my cup of tea but it was experience. After being there a month I was contacted by a Nurse Recruiter who was given my name along with a glowing recommendation. Interviewed with this person and was offered a position on a inpatient oncology floor. I start this Monday and I am beyond excited!
