Join a dynamic and growing team with the Santa Monica Hematology/Oncology unit. As a Nurse Practitioner on this service, U can make a difference in our patient and families lives! Within a collaborative environment, the Oncology Nurse Practitioner (NP) is responsible for providing/coordinating patient clinical care for patients with leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and other hematologic malignancies, including those receiving CAR T-Cell therapy.
In this interdependent role you will ensure quality of patient care by implementing clinical protocols following standards of care practice guidelines, policies and procedures. By using the SPs the NP is able to change treatment regimen after observing signs and symptoms of illness, reactions to treatment, general behavior and physical condition and determines if they are abnormal findings (Ca Nursing Practice Act, subsection(b) of Section 2725). The NP will provide and coordinate the care of patients, provide patient/family education, promote safe continuity of care. The NP also participates in interdisciplinary and clinical rounds, provides education and support, as well as makes appropriate referrals.
