Are you looking to change nursing specialties? Interested in exploring oncology nursing? We are willing to train and support you in learning radiation oncology nursing. This is a unique nursing specialty with opportunities for professional growth and development as an oncology nurse. Nurses lead care coordination, manage radiation related toxicities in partnership with a strong team of providers, assist in complex innovative high dose radiation procedures and provide important patient education and supportive care.
As part of a nationally recognized NCI Designated Cancer Center the Department of Radiation Oncology treats patients who have malignant and non-malignant diseases utilizing a variety of radiation delivery techniques. This includes external beam radiation and high dose rate radiation delivered via catheters. Radiation therapy services are delivered as part of a multi-specialty team and approach to care. Our team includes physicians, RNs, radiation therapists, physicists, and dosimetrists.
Radiation nurses describe the role as part inpatient nursing and part clinic nursing; this is due to the high acuity of patients in an academic medical center setting, nursing care of actual inpatients transported for treatment, and complex procedural nursing roles.
