The UNM Cancer Center provides chemotherapy treatment in the infusion suite, located on the fourth floor of our clinic.
Our oncology nurses are experts in cancer care. They specialize in giving chemotherapy. The oncology nursing team provides support to patients and their families and teaches them about chemotherapy, its safety and its side effects.
When my patient tells me, ‘this is hard to go through, but you all make it easier,’ that makes me proud of my work.
