Nursing

Nurses at Cancer & Hematology Centers of Western Michigan are a crucial part in the delivery of compassionate care. Our nurses provide the balance between innovative, expert treatment and personalized care. We are committed to maintaining the highest professional standards and keeping abreast of the latest treatments and technology through research, certification and life-long learning.

During your care, our nurses commit to the following:

To care for you in all phases of diagnosis and treatment

To collaborate with your physician and all other members of our care team to provide comprehensive, individualized care

To provide expert nursing care to maximize health, enhance quality of life, relieve suffering, and provide education and support to you and your family

To administer all required treatments with competency and accuracy, and to assist compassionately with side effect management

To maintain certifications in the implementation of specialized treatments such as chemotherapy, IV therapy, and blood transfusion

To maximize your quality of life and make sure you feel comforted

To provide continuity of care, facilitate seamless transition from one treatment area to another, and establish ongoing resources for you and your family throughout your journey

All of our registered nurses are chemotherapy-certified and a large number of them have oncology certification from the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation. The certification validates, based on predetermined standards, an individual registered nurse’s qualifications and knowledge of oncology practice.
