Heather Parde Receives Oncology Certification
Heather Parde RN has received her ONS/ONCC Chemotherapy Immunotherapy Certificate. Parde has been the oncology nurse at Jefferson Community Health & Life since March 2021.
This certificate means Parde possesses knowledge in the subspecialty chemotherapy and immunotherapy administration. This course equips her with the tools she needs to safely administer chemotherapy and immunotherapy to our patients with cancer, while providing the type of quality care demanded by JCH&L.
The course is intended for nurses who have knowledge of cancer basics and are in a position to regularly administer chemotherapy and immunotherapy. It builds on a foundation of cancer knowledge, with the learner earning a certificate of added qualification upon successful completion.
The certification is renewable every two years.
Dr. Joni Tilford, oncologist with Cancer Partners of Nebraska, comes to JCH&L monthly. Ancillary services available include lab, radiology, respiration therapy and surgery. JCH&L can take orders for services – including chemotherapy and ancillary services – from any physician or oncologist.
