Question for chemotherapy nurses

Posted

Specializes in School Nursing. Has 10 years experience.

I am a new grad (May) who works in an orthopedic clinic. On some days I work in the cancer clinic and have found that I really enjoy working with the oncology patients. I have also been told that my personality is a good fit for oncology. After not feeling very sure about one particular specialty, I honestly think that this is my niche! I have visited the chemotherapy treatment room and talked to nurses, and immediately I knew this is the area I would love to work in. My question is this; I have no hospital experience so is it possible to get hired and trained for a chemo clinic without that hospital background and only clinic experience? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks
