Anita Nirenberg, PhD, RN, AOCNP, PNP-BC, FAAN, a professor of clinical nursing and associate director for Nurse Practitioner Specialties at Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, discusses pediatric oncology nursing.

Nirenberg says that pediatric nursing is a unique speciality because it also involves other families members including the siblings, parents and grandparents, and the oncology community is increasingly addressing the family unit. 

The National Coalition of Cancer Survivorship offers a resource program, Caring for the Caregiver and the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation, which offers a number of programs—including a bereavement program—for families. 

Nirenberg says that she is impressed with the growing recognition that cancer touches everyone.
