- Nurse Practitioner What's this? A nurse practitioner is extensively trained to treat illness or disease and to prescribe medication to their patients. They work on teams with a licensed physician, but can treat patients with significant autonomy. Nurse practitioners work in a variety of settings, including primary care and various other medical and surgical specialties.
About MeI am a nurse practitioner in the Department of Urologic Surgery at the OSUCCC – James, where I assist in the treatment of patients with prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular and penile cancers. In particular, my focus is on the surgical aspects of urologic cancer treatment and surveillance after treatment.
My goal is to have a positive impact on patients during this very difficult time, guiding them through the treatment process and ensuring they understand each step of their diagnosis. I believe that patient and provider must be partners on this journey, taking into account an individual’s preferences and needs in order to deliver the best care possible.
Cancer treatment at The James is grounded in research and provides unique opportunities due to the multidisciplinary treatment teams, which can include surgeons, oncologists, nurses and radiologists. It’s this team environment that not only makes the OSUCCC – James a great place to work, but it also leads to better patient care as we work together to create a cancer-free world.
