Please help me? What is a pediatric oncology nurse?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Craig MacArthur
33 years experience in Pediatric Hematology and Oncology
Special nurse: The pediatric oncology nurse is a nurse that provides care for childhood cancer patients and children with blood conditions. Many have special training and certification from the association of pediatric hematology/oncology nurses. In my role as a pediatric hematologist-oncologist, i find their skill and expertise important to our success of treating children and their families successfully.
