Providence Saint John's Health Center has been serving the Santa Monica and westside Los Angeles county communities since 1942, and since that time has earned a reputation for clinical excellence and award-winning care in a compassionate and tranquil healing environment.
Today, Providence Saint John's is a nationally renowned 266-bed hospital with physicians, nurses, volunteers and support staff who work as a team to provide the best possible medical care to its patients and the community. Providence Saint John's provides the latest in diagnostic technology and specialty care with a strong commitment to its core service lines: heart and vascular care, oncology, orthopedics and women's health. Saint John's also is home to the world-renowned John Wayne Cancer Institute, dedicated to clinical research and medical advancements in cancer care.
The role of the oncology nurse (Onc RN) is to provide care for cancer patients throughout all stages of their conditions, but usually focusing on the acute phase. The Onc RN will help patients ranging from post-surgical to near-terminal manage their disease and treatment effectively, and may also be responsible for administering chemotherapy (which requires additional certification). Oncology nurses may practice in hospitals and outpatient facilities or provide home-based care.
Offering a moderate climate in a beautiful seaside community, Santa Monica is filled with fabulous shopping, dining and entertainment options. With its gentle ocean breezes, soft sandy beaches, outdoor cafes and eclectic boutiques, this West Coast locale is a great place to indulge in the California lifestyle.
