We’ve all seen the Facebook or YouTube video of a person who has just completed cancer treatment and is overcome with joy, ringing the bell and sounding the alarm that treatment is done. What often moves us, in addition to the patient’s celebration, are the joyful and sometimes tearful faces of the oncology nurses.

Oncology nurses are at the forefront of cancer care every step of the way – in explaining the diagnosis, administering treatments, managing side effects, supporting patients and their families, rejoicing during triumphs and offering words of comfort.
