Hematology Nurse is trained to care for patients with blood diseases and disorders. They may also assist with blood transfusions, blood tests, research, and chemotherapy. The nurses work with hematologists or oncologists. Most hematology patients are very ill with diseases such as leukemia, sickle cell anemia, thrombocytopenia, hemophilia and other life-threatening diseases.
An oncology nurse is a nursing professional who specializes in caring for people with cancer. Oncology nurses often serve as our first line of communication, and help coordinate the many aspects of our care throughout cancer treatment.
The Hematology/ oncology Nurses may perform a number of duties, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Review our health history
