Because cancer treatment and care differ considerably depending on the facilities and the type of cancer, oncological nurses' job responsibilities vary greatly. Basic duties of most oncological nurses include assessing patients' physical and emotional needs and medical histories; managing patient symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and pain; working with physicians, radiation therapists, and other medical professionals during the cancer diagnosis and treatment process; and counseling the patient all along the way through diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up procedures.
