Introducing Lynn Horne RN: I would like to introduce myself, as well as what I will be bringing to you in my role as Oncology Nurse Consultant for the Cathy Miller Cancer Fund. You can contact me with your question or concern anytime via e-mail and will recieve a response
within 24 hours. Remember, the only foolish question is the one not asked. Contact Lynn . . .
As an oncology certified nurse (OCN), I have worked in various oncology settings for the past 12 years. I am active in my local chapter of the Oncology Nursing Society, enabling me to stay current with new trends and treatments. As a bedside nurse I’ve assisted cancer patients as well as their families throughout their hospital experience. As a hospital charge nurse, I have trained nurses to be not only proficient in administering chemotherapy but also to be truly present for their patients. In the outpatient setting, I have worked with patients and families throughout the treatment continuum. As the infusion manager for an 11 doctor practice, I have guided nurses in what I consider to be the most satisfying aspect of my nursing experience, oncology nursing.
Through this venue, I would like to share my experiences with you and hear about yours. Keep in mind that with every issue, concern, comment and question that you share, many others will benefit. I could not possibly state this better than Cathy Miller’s own sentiment to Help Another Person . . .
With all of the commonalities of cancer, it is distinctly individual. You’re given a framework of what to expect, but like everything else in life the experience is your own. Of course your primary source of information is always your own medical team. I look forward to sharing experiences with you and hopefully offering clarifications and addressing concerns.
