Telling My Oncologist

When I saw my oncologist this past week I told him that I was accepted into the nursing school. He is a great doctor and helped to save mine and Gabriella's life. I was always so happy with how I was treated there and how promptly he got things done when it came to my health.

I told him I was going to be an oncology nurse. He seemed so happy and even said "Hey if you ever need a job!" Ha! That was great. I couldn't imagine working for MY oncologist. He said he thought I would be a great nurse because I have been there. He then told me his wife was a breast cancer survivor so he understands too. I really do think it makes a difference to be able to see both sides. I believe it gives me an advantage working in this field. I know what's it like to be the one with the cancer. Maybe I can give even one person hope some day.

A lot of people go into nursing after they have had a health crisis, themselves. I think it makes them more compassionate, and understand for what the patient is experiencing. I think you will be a fine nurse, and I wish you the best of luck.

Having been there yourself, being an oncology nurse is apt for you. For sure you'll be the most emphatic and effective nurse. Godspeed!!

I think it is so neat that you are going to be an oncology nurse, I think it will be comforting to your future patients that you have been where they are and you pulled through.
