As a nurse practitioner on Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Lymphoma Service, I work with adults undergoing treatment for Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In collaboration with physicians, I help coordinate the care required for patients who will be receiving high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplants. I also care for patients during the post-transplant period.
Many of my patients are also enrolled on clinical trials; I work with the physicians to help coordinate the treatment schedule. I am able to perform physical examinations, generate prescriptions, and provide education to the patient and family members about the transplant process.
