What does an oncology nurse do?

Oncology nurses work within an interdisciplinary team to provide curative and palliative treatments for all types of cancers and blood disorders, along with the appropriate interventions. They devise and implement care plans to reach determined goals and provide the best outcomes. They administer chemotherapy, medications, and IVs through various methods. A primary responsibility is patient monitoring and assessment, including before and after chemotherapy and assessing complications from treatment to manage immediate and long-term side effects.

What skills make a good oncology nurse?

Oncology nurses must have in-depth knowledge of all types of cancers and the expected side effects of all types of cancer treatments.

Top skills for a good oncology nurse often involve interpersonal and other soft skills, which include active listening skills to ensure patients understand their disease, treatment options, and potential outcomes.
