Our patient population is Oncology patients. Radiation Oncology med surge nurses provides phase 1/ phase 2 recovery care for patients receiving high dose rate (HDR) and low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy radiation treatments. Nurses are expected to cross cover and support the outpatient clinic, as needed, for patient weekly assessment (vitals, med rec, referrals) and patient education as it relates to radiation treatments. The med-surg nurse needs high-level critical thinking skills, vast knowledge of disease states and body systems, robust management skills, and the ability to stay calm under pressure. Med surg nurses also provide pre-op, intra op and phase 1/ phase 2 recovery care. These qualities provide a well-rounded foundation for the start of your nursing career.
