“Oncology is a specialty that requires a great deal of empathy, precision of care and lifetime relationship. Having worked a few years in different units prior to working for 4 years as a general medical oncology nurse, I can honestly say oncology has been and is still a rewarding choice for me. The privilege to become part of a patient’s life and to provide compassionate care during what may be a really difficult time for them and their family is invaluable. My purpose as your nurse practitioner is to really get to know you beyond your illness and to work directly with you to provide and ensure an individualized, patient-centered plan of care to you and your loved ones.”
