Nursing

Nurses play an important role in caring for patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering and are often the members of the treatment team with whom you will have the most contact. Your nurses bring extraordinary knowledge, experience, and expertise to your care because they specialize in helping people with your particular type of cancer. Your nurses will help you through your experience at Memorial Sloan Kettering whether you are being treated in the hospital or as an outpatient.

Nurses at Memorial Sloan Kettering collaborate with doctors and other members of your patient care team to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. The nurses on your team provide a range of services — administering therapies, monitoring your treatment and watching out for side effects, educating you and your family about what to expect during treatment, and offering emotional support. Nurses also help coordinate your appointments, communicate important information to various members of your patient care team, and keep track of other details related to your treatment. Nurses at Memorial Sloan Kettering maintain a patient-centered focus, placing your needs and preferences first.
