    im not sure about all heme/onc floors, but that one definitely stood out from general med/surg floors...no other pts were aloud to be admitted to the floor if they werent heme/onc or sickle cell (rarely) b/c the cancer pts are so sick...or can get so sick. the bone marrow transplant hall was half the unit and they were often getting BMTs on the floor which is intense b/c the nurse has to sit at their bedside the entire time (as with certain chemos that are new to the pt). so, in other words, no, i don't think it was even close to being a typical med/surg floor, BUT that was just MUSC so idk about other places

    Hi VA nurses,

    I just graduated in May '09 and just passed boards - I'll be starting on an oncology unit in a couple weeks. Speaking of - anybody have any good input regarding oncology and what all it entails? Unfortunately never got into the oncology clinical during school.

    Thanks!

    Howdy, Guess today is my official first day as a RN, as I wrote NCLEX yesterday and got the results this morning. Nice to have that behind me. Start at end of Aug at reston Hospital on the PCU (cardiac) Looking forward to it, as I had a great time there on my preceptorship.
    Congratulations and good luck on the new job!
