Debra M. O’Shea

Clinical Nurse Specialist, Adult Leukemia Service and Myelosdyplastic Syndrome

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2003, after completing my post-master’s program at New York University with a focus on holistic nursing care. Holistic nursing emphasizes healing the whole person through the unity of body, mind, emotion, spirit, and environment. In my job, I incorporate these principles into the care of people with myelodysplastic syndrome and leukemia.

I am proud to work with dedicated colleagues committed to care of the whole person at this outstanding institution.
