Nurses

Our team of Registered Nurses (RN’s) are trained specifically in the field of oncology to accurately and safely administer chemotherapy and to ensure that each patient is receiving the correct care. As a job requirement of ABCC once a nurse has been on staff for one year he or she must begin the process of becoming OCN certified (Oncology Nurse Certified). OCN nurses are rare and the preparation and testing to become one is very difficult. We take great pride in the fact that our nurses are able to attain this high and difficult honor. Patient care is important to us and it is important that we offer only the best. Our cancer team not only consists of RN’s but of a medical assistant as well. The medical assistant is trained to assist the physicians and nurses. The medical assistant will normally call the patient back to the room and take a medical history and the patient’s vitals prior to the physician seeing the patient.
  

Our staff is committed to providing quality care and assurance to our patients during their difficult time. The oncology nurses administer the chemotherapy in an intimate setting where patients can relax and be at ease. The chemo room is equipped with recliners, beds, and a television to provide the patients with the comforts of their own homes. Patients are encouraged to bring family or a friend with them for support while they are receiving treatment.
