Lynn Lawson has been a nurse for 36 years, with most of those being in the pediatric hematology/oncology world. She originally started at Riley Hospital for Children on the School Age Unit, focusing care on all patients in the 6–12 year age group. She quickly gravitated to the hematology/oncology population and gladly moved to the Cancer and Blood Disorders Center when it opened in 1994.
Lynn has served as a charge nurse, case manager, day shift coordinator, and clinical manger, currently managing both the Heme/Onc unit and the Stem Cell Transplant unit. Previously she worked in hospice/oncology homecare, adult oncology, and also helped to develop a nursing division for an infusion pharmacy. Lynn attended Indiana University School of Nursing, where she received her BSN in 1986, and the University of Indianapolis for her MSN, graduating in 2019. She will begin her doctoral program this fall, again at the University of Indianapolis.
