Hilda S. Quintanilla

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1988 as a staff nurse in what eventually became the leukemia-lymphoma inpatient unit. As a staff nurse, I was involved in staff education and guiding, or precepting, new registered nurses. I played an active charge nurse role, and was part of multiple hospital wide committees.

In 1999, I assisted in developing the chemotherapy nurse verification role at the new outpatient facility, Rockefeller Outpatient Pavilion on 53rd Street. A year later, I returned to the inpatient leukemia unit at the hospital.

Upon becoming a Nurse Practitioner in 2004, I joined the inpatient Leukemia and Lymphoma Services, and provided help for each as needed. Among other functions I obtain patient histories, perform physical examinations, order and interpret diagnostic tests, collaborate with doctors in customizing individualized patient treatment plans, and address common treatment-related adverse and critical events.
