What's this job called? "Chemo nurse?"
I want to go to college when I am older (8th grade now) and I want a job paying $70,000 a year or more. I know what I want to do, but not what it is called. I want to work with cancer patients, mainly kids? Not really a surgeon to remove the cancer, but more like the chemo nurse? I ONLY want to work with children cancer patients, not adults, or just any patient in the hospital. I was thinking maybe St. Jude. I want the job to access/decess chest ports, etc. What's it called? How much does that job pay? How long would I have to go to college for it? Thanks! :] I don't want to live in a shack. I want to get paid well for what I do, not do it for little or nothing. =| Gas will be no telling how much by then. I googled 'pediatric oncologist' and that was exactly what I was describing!! Thank you!!!!
