Scope and Importance:

            Nursing in cancer care focuses on patient assessment, education, symptom management, and supportive care. In medical oncology they play an integral role in the administration of antineoplastic agents and are responsible for safe drug handling; evaluation of laboratory data; calculation of drug dosages on the basis of body surface area; insertion of intravenous lines or accessing central venous devices; continuous and time intensive monitoring to address potential adverse reactions or drug interactions; and screening patients for inclusion in available research trials or protocols. In the radiation oncology arena the nurses need to have an understanding of radiobiology and radiation physics. They are also responsible for extensive symptom management, patient education and the submission process for clinical trials or research protocols.

Why Las Vegas, USA?

Las Vegas is the most populous city in Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally renowned major resort city for shopping and fine dining. Las Vegas, which bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, is famous for the number of casino resorts and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family city, it is the 28th most populous city in the United States.

The major attractions in Las Vegas are the casinos and the hotels. The most famous hotel casinos are located on Las Vegas Boulevard on the portion of that road known as the Las Vegas Strip. These larger casinos are located outside of the city. Many of these hotels are massive, providing thousands of rooms, with their large adjoining casino areas. There are many hotel casinos in the city's downtown area as well, which was the focal point of the city's gaming industry in its early days. Several large hotels and casinos are also located somewhat off the Strip, as well as in the county around the city.

Some of the most notable casinos involved in downtown gaming are on the Fremont Street Experience which was granted variances to allow bars to be closer together, similar to the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego.
