At Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, leading cancer specialists use the most advanced technologies to achieve breakthrough successes in treating many types of cancer. Patients who are undergoing treatment for cancer are facing the unknown and need special, personalized treatments and kindhearted attention. For that reason, we send oncology patients to 8 North to receive exceptional care.

 

The Oncology Unit (8 North) at Fort Sanders Regional is a 42 bed unit providing care for patients who have a cancer diagnosis. We work very closely with Thompson Cancer Survival Center and specialize in the treatment of the oncology patient including those who are receiving inpatient chemotherapy and targeted therapies, blood transfusions, or those who need end of life care. Patients on our unit usually stay a few weeks at a time.

In addition to having excellent critical thinking skills, our ideal candidate will also possess outstanding communication and interpersonal skills.

 

Our staff consists of RNs, LPNs, CNA/PCAs, and HUCs who work together to provide exceptional patient care. We have a supportive environment and an orientation tailored to your needs.

 

As an organization, we want to grow our employees by promoting a culture of excellence and professionalism. Because of this, nurses on 8N are encouraged to become certified in oncology nursing or chemotherapy. We provide classes to become an OCN on site. If you choose to become certified, our organization can help with the cost of your testing, as well as pay you a yearly bonus for taking the next step in your career.
