A common myth that we often hear from graduate nurses and a few experienced nurses is that being an Oncology PCU nurse is depressing. Turns out, that statement is a myth. Being an oncology nurse is inspiring. You get to be part of someone’s journey, sitting front row with their loved ones cheering them on! Sure, there are days when it can get very difficult and overwhelming, but what nursing specialty isn’t? Choosing to become a nurse comes with challenges but the personal rewards you gain outweigh the tough days. To help give you a better perspective of what it’s like to be an oncology nurse, we interviewed Kelly Cronin, nurse manager at AdventHealth Winter Park and Katherine Long from AdventHealth Altamonte Springs.
