What do you do for you?

As an oncology nurse, a good deal of your day is spent focused on the quality of life for your patients. You treat their disease, manage their symptoms, minimize their pain, and educate them and their families on the many aspects of living with a cancer diagnosis. At the end of the day, how do you leave your job behind and go back to being a spouse, a parent, a sibling, and a friend? What do you do to improve the quality of your life?

To help you answer these questions, Oncology Nurse Advisor created "The Total Nurse: Caring for Self While Caring for Others," a new section on our Web site. This section aims to provide information and resources to help you, the oncology nurse, cope with stress on the job and enhance life off the job.

The editors of ONA are working with Kerstin McSteen, BSN, MSN, ACHPN, CNS-BC, an oncology nurse with Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and a member of the Oncology Nurse Advisor Editorial Board, to find tools that will help you determine your stress level, locate resources to reduce it, and introduce you to new ways of enriching your life. But we want your input.

The next time you visit www.OncologyNurseAdvisor.com, go to The Total Nurse and take a moment to complete the survey telling us what you want to find in this section. Look around and feel free to write to editor.ona@haymarketmedia.com and let us know what you think should be included in this section. We look forward to working with you, our readers, to build this into a unique resource for nurses. ONA
