What is an Oncology Nurse?

An oncology nurse is a registered nurse who specializes in the treatment of cancer patients. Oncology nurses, also called hematology/oncology nurses, care for patients of all ages who have been diagnosed with cancer and help them navigate complex treatment protocols and manage cancer symptoms and cancer treatment side effects. Oncology is a challenging, yet rewarding, field that offers career-long learning and professional growth.

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. They also educate, counsel, and support patients and their families regarding their ongoing care and emotional states.

Where do oncology nurses work?

Oncology nurses may work at midsize to large hospitals that have oncology departments. They may also work at dedicated cancer treatment centers or ambulatory clinics that provide cancer treatments.

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. They must possess advanced clinical skills to treat various cancers and manage complications that arise from treatment. 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. 

Oncology nurses must also have comprehensive health assessment skills to monitor patients’ physical, mental, and emotional health. Communication skills are also a must to effectively convey information to doctors, other medical staff, patients, and patients’ family members. Compassion and empathy are highly desirable interpersonal skills to form healthy nurse-patient relations, which are especially vital during end of life care.
