Nancy Cruz Sitner

Nurse Practitioner

I started my nursing career in the field of hematologic-oncologic malignancies and bone marrow transplantation in 2006. Throughout my career, I have strived to treat patients with compassion and respect while empowering them to make healthy decisions about their lifestyle and treatment options.

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2013, as a nurse practitioner on the inpatient Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Service. In this role I work closely with patients during their hospitalization. In collaboration with our physicians, I manage a caseload of patients actively receiving autologous and allogeneic transplants, and I also care for patients who are readmitted with post-transplant complications such as infections and graft-versus-host disease.

I enjoy the level of personal attention I am able to provideas well as the opportunity to teach patients and their families about the illness and how to care for themselves. I look forward to making prevention, wellness, evidence-based practice, and patient education my professional priorities in my career at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
