When wanting to become an oncology nurse, are there any courses in colleges not required, but would be good to take for that?

As many of my family members have been affected by cancer, I have decided I want my life goal to be dedicating my time to patients who are also suffering. #nurse #oncologist #medicine #healthcare #hospital-and-health-care

Jennifer any classes that are a biology, anatomy/physiology related are great classes to take and will be helpful to becoming a oncology nurse. Volunteering at a cancer center or at a hospital on an oncology floor would be great also because it puts you right in the environment with cancer patients. While you are volunteering you can hear doctors and nurses talking and you will pick up medical terminology. Good luck
