Recognition Session for Certified Oncology Nurses: Having a Ball: Including a Healthy Dose of Music, Laughter and Patient Inspiration (RB)

"Oncology nurses are the backbone and heart of a cancer patient’s experience – playing the most critical roles for their patients - doing everything from administering chemo, warding off side-effects, comforting on the bad days and celebrating the victories. They are a trusted confidante and tender caregiver. In addition, nurses are increasingly being charged with taking larger leadership roles as well. They are truly the superheroes of health care (carrying magic wands that seem to fix everything!) for their patients.
