Heart (The Heart of the Oncology Nurse)

Cancer knows no boundaries

Cancer affects us all

Cancer crosses borders

Oceans do not deter

The pain and suffering

It has wrought us all

The heart of the oncology nurse

The heart knows no boundaries

The love and caring

Crosses oceans

Bringing joy and hope

Professionalism, care, devotion

Given to all

Cancer will never deter

The heart of the oncology nurse

Love given to all

Joyce Skalinski, RN, OCN, BC, CHPN, is an oncology nurse in Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Maryland.
