Vantage owns and operates over 50 cancer treatment facilities in 13 states. Our network of affiliated physicians and partnered medical groups including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons and hospitals provide exceptional care through a comprehensive team approach to treating cancer. We treat cancer by creating an environment of wellness surrounding the patient with exceptional medical professionals, vast clinical expertise and technical resources. We become part of every community we serve and work with other organizations to bring awareness and education to those affected by cancer. We provide critical oncology services to 1,400 patients per day and we celebrate the exceptional care we have provided over the past twelve years as well as our continued growth. We have an immediate opening for a Per Diem Registered Nurse to cover our Foley and Brewton locations. Vantage Oncology is built on a model of primary care nursing where you will have the opportunity to help each of your patients through their radiation treatment from consult through the follow-up period. Working in direct collaboration with the physician, you will be responsible for patient assessments, management of side effects, continuous patient education, and providing psychosocial support to the patient and their family during their cancer journey. In this outpatient setting, patients come in daily for treatment for up to several weeks, giving you the opportunity to have the time usually lacking for patient education and support.
The ideal candidate will have:
Associate's degree or equivalent from a two-year college or technical school
Licensure as required by State
Minimum 2 years strong medical-surgical or oncology experience
Experience with electronic medical records

With seven convenient locations in Albany, Amsterdam, Clifton Park in Saratoga County, Hudson, Rexford and Troy, our team of 32 physicians and 350 cancer care specialists see more than 100,000 cancer visits a year.
NYOH has always been at the forefront of cancer care. More than 30 years ago, we began as the region’s first oncology practice in a community setting (outside a hospital). A few years later, we offered the first radiation treatment outside a hospital setting.
Today, we continue our commitment of providing world class care, close to home. We offer the region’s largest clinical research and drug trial operation, only stem cell transplant program and only neuro-oncology care. We recently brought the first Varian Truebeam Radiotherapy System to our new practice: Clifton Park in Saratoga County.
Our medical staff includes 32 board certified physicians who specialize in the care of patients with cancer (medical oncology and radiation oncology) and blood-related disorders (hematology). With a patient care team of more than 350 oncology certified nurse...s, pharmacists, laboratory technologists, radiation therapists and support personnel, we are able to provide the personal level of care our patients need during treatment.
