The pediatric oncology nurses who work at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) at Children's Hospital Colorado are highly trained and dedicated to the care of kids, adolescents and young adults with cancer and blood diseases.
Their devotion and expertise is demonstrated in a multitude of ways, from their willingness to learn and incorporate the newest evidence-based practices and technology into their care, to using individualized comfort measures for each patient.
Our nurses are life-long learners committed to continuing education and certification, and they are actively involved within the cancer community. Oncology nurses from the CCBD volunteer at summer camps for children with cancer and blood disorders, and for organizations that provide support and research. They also lead and participate in nursing projects and research that elevate the care they deliver.
Each disease-based program within the CCBD has primary nurses who sub-specialize in that area of hematology, oncology or bone marrow transplantation. Our primary nurses serve as care coordinators who help you navigate through each phase of treatment.
On the inpatient unit and in the outpatient clinic, your family will be assigned a primary nurse or primary team. Your nurse will serve as an educator and care coordinator, ensuring that your child and family understand every step of the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.
