Tonya Ureda, MS RN FNP-BCNurse Practitioner

Tonya Ureda is a Nurse Practitioner at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC. She has practiced as a nurse practitioner in the field of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology since May 2011. Tonya practices primarily in the inpatient setting, caring for patients who are admitted to the hospital with hematologic and oncologic complications.

Tonya has been active at her institution in standardizing practices related to common problems that affect hematology and oncology patients. This has improved patient care through offering evidence-based management recommendations and reducing variability in practice among providers. Tonya is also working on an Evidence-Based Practice project with Children's Oncology Group. The goal of this collaborative project is to perform a systematic review of the literature and ultimately provide recommendation statements regarding adolescents' willingness to communicate symptoms to providers.
