Bernadette M. Cuello

I am responsible for helping cancer patients in numerous ways, from caring for individuals undergoing transplant in the pre- and post-transplant setting to screening potential donors, performing bone marrow biopsies, providing prescriptions, and administering vaccinations. I have been with the service since 2000.

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1986, first as a clinical nurse. Upon becoming a nurse practitioner in 1996 I helped to manage inpatients receiving chemotherapy who also had complicated medical problems. I moved to the Orthopaedic Surgical Service in 1997, overseeing the daily management of cancer patients before and after surgery, among other responsibilities.

I have been active professionally on the national level, and was proud to have received the National League of Nursing Centennial Leadership Award in 1993. Over the years I have also contributed my time and expertise to Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Nursing Education Advisory Committee and was a Nurse Leader for the Upper Gastrointestinal Disease Management Team.
