What does a pediatri oncologist nurse do?
I know they treat children with cancer, but what are some details??
Additional Details
oops I meant pediatric

Well . . if you mean professionally . . they need to know how to stay calm around extremely ill children, they need to know how to administer chemotherapy drugs, how to administer anti-nausea meds, how to insert different tubes .. they need to know how to take care of a central line . . they need to know how to monitor oxygen levels and other types of machines, place catheters, nose tubes, when to contact doctors or other personel, how to run inteference with the Resident doctors, how to protect their little patients from those who forget they are dealing with little human beings . . we loved our pediatric nursing staff . . they are forever in my heart. They kept my son company, comforted him when needed, made sure he was as comfortable physically as he could be, brought him things (like sandwiches), worried about him, and when it was apparent that he would not survive . . they were there for him and for me . . they became extremely protective, no one was allowed in his door, they argued with residents that just were basically curious, they begged us to stay in the hospital because they felt they could care for him best, but in the end we decided he needed to be at home. And we ended up loving his hospice nurse as well . . all were outstanding. And, all of them attended his service. So, I would say . . a pediatric oncology nurse must be strong, professional and prepared to deal with ill children that may not survive their disease.

A Pediatric Oncologist Nurse is one who takes care and treats children with tumors (Cancer). They need to be able to administer medicines, offer emotional support and be able to go help the general family with the disease (emotionally and mentally).

You often find people don't become depressed when they find out they will die, people become depressed and sad when they think and find out they will die alone. The emotional support is what people with Cancer need as well as the physical help. The emotional is just as important as any other help and is in the USA and UK considered part of the treatment. Being able to stay strong with the parents and child is what required.

I won't go into too much information as the answer above mine told you it in a long list, but basically they need to help administer medicines/chemotherapy and offer emotional support.

Hope I helped,
