Oncology Nurse jobs: frequently asked questions

Welcome to our Oncology Nurse jobs page, featuring the very latest oncology nursing roles across the UK, as well as frequently asked questions below.

What is an Oncology Nurse?

An Oncology Nurse cares for and supports patients with cancer.

Oncology Nurses work in a variety of settings, including hospital wards, specialist clinics and community healthcare settings. And they work with patients of all ages.

It’s a specialised role involving working in multi-disciplinary teams, and roles are common in the NHS, private sector and charity sector.

What are the daily duties of an Oncology Nurse?

The daily duties of an Oncology Nurse could include:

• Supporting and educating patients and their loved ones about the condition and treatments

• Making assessments and recommending treatments

• Assisting patients through treatments like chemotherapy

• Supporting patients through the side effects of cancer treatments

• Administering medication

• Monitoring vital signs

It’s a shift-based role, and you may be required to work nights, weekends and holiday shifts.

How do you become an Oncology Nurse?

In most cases, to become an Oncology Nurse you’ll need a couple of years of specialised experience or some postgraduate qualifications in oncology, to go with your nursing degree which is a minimum requirement.

A Master’s degree in oncology will make it relatively easy to apply for oncology nursing roles, but practical experience is often sufficient too.

It’s also worth noting that many roles will be highly specialised – for example, a role focused on the elderly or a specific type of cancer. And in these instances, specific experience within that area will normally be essential.

How much do Oncology Nurses earn?

The average Oncology Nurse probably earns somewhere between £36,000 and £38,000 a year. But pinpointing Oncology Nurse salaries is tricky.

That’s mainly because some roles are advertised as Band 5 positions, with starting salaries of £24,907 a year, while others are advertised at Band 6, with a starting salary of £31,365.

Broadly speaking, experienced Oncology Nurses can earn up to and beyond £40,000 a year.

Privately, salaries appear to be very similar – as NHS salaries are used as a benchmark.

In terms of increasing your earnings, your best bet is to keep training and to secure further specialist qualifications and experience at every opportunity.
