What You Will Do:

Outpatient Oncology Nurse Coordinator
Full Time – Day ShiftThe University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UM-GCCC) Stoler Pavilion houses the Stoler Clinic and Stoler Infusion. The Nurse Coordinator role is a unique outpatient position primarily within the Stoler Clinic. However, due to the complex patient care needs, the Nurse Coordinator is actively involved in the continuum of care, whether it be while the patient is admitted, pursuing testing in another area of the hospital or community, or within the clinic during a provider visit.

The Nurse Coordinator works alongside one or two outpatient UM-GCCC attending physicians. Our physicians specialize in specific oncology diagnoses which allows the Nurse Coordinator to become well-versed in the specialized needs of the patients under their care. Together with the attending physician and clinic Medical Assistant (MA) or Patient Care Technician (PCT), the Nurse Coordinator will manage the ongoing needs of the patient.
Each day in Stoler Clinic varies. During an Attending Physicians scheduled clinic, the MA/PCT assists in efficient patient flow, and the Nurse Coordinator will assist with the active treatment of patients to insure patient awareness of the upcoming plan, whether it be for chemotherapy, routine follow up, surveillance scans, or referrals to specialists outside of Stoler Clinic. On non-clinic days, Nurse Coordinators can expect to see scheduled nurse visits for education and/or symptom management, review active treatment patient schedules, prepare for the clinic (ensuring that patients have appointments scheduled, lab orders are signed ahead of time, chemotherapy Beacon Treatment Plans have been signed, etc.), and return calls to patients as received via the Patient Assistance Line (the UM-GCCC call center).
In a nutshell, the Nurse Coordinator functions as the quarterback of the care team to ensure the patients understand and is on track with their treatment plan.  This may include delegating tasks to ancillary staff (scheduling and authorization coordinators as well as MA/PCTs). It is a role that requires an understanding of Oncology, organization, confidence, diligence and is integral to the experience of the oncology patients being seen at UM-GCCC.

What You Need to Be Successful:

Minimum Qualifications: Graduation from an accredited school of nursing, with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing, required Licensure as a Registered Nurse in the state of Maryland, or is eligible to practice due to compact state requirements outlined by the Maryland Board of Nursing. Oncology or Critical Care experience preferred.

It means a lot to me that UMMC is celebrating pride month this year. Early in my career, I kept a piece of me hidden every time I entered the workplace but eight years ago, when I joined the team here, I made a conscious choice not to do that any longer. I decided that I'm going to bring my whole self to work. So now when I entered the doors of the hospital I'm entering the door as a man who is gay, who has a wonderful husband and has three gorgeous children. I hope I probably celebrating pride UMC. We liberate those that still struggle to bring their whole whole self to work. And as an inaugural chair of UMC pride our employee resource group, I want to thank leadership for providing that platform from which to be heard and to be seen and to be recognized for the contributions that our community provides to the organization.
