Cecilia Watson

Clinical Nurse Specialist, Ambulatory Care Services

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering as a clinical nurse specialist in 2010, after more than 20 years of working in this capacity and as an advance practice nurse. I care for people with both solid and liquid tumors such as lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and head and neck tumors.

In addition to caring for patients and educating them about cancer, I help with staff education and development and collaborate with nurse leaders to shape and implement goals for our unit. I also monitor our clinical practice to ensure that we are complying with established standards, and assist in creating a climate for effective use of our research to ensure an evidence-based nursing practice.
