Heidi O’Connell, MSN, APRN-NP
As a Hospitalist for Nebraska Cancer Specialists, I have the pleasure of taking care of patients during an inpatient hospital stay. My role is to manage the day-to-day care during a patient’s hospitalization, while closely coordinating with their medical oncology care team.
In addition to providing compassionate care, I work with teams of nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, nutritionists, social workers, and other specialists, including surgeons, radiologists, and palliative care. Because I am based in the hospital, it allows me to work directly with the patient’s oncologist to coordinate tests, treatments, and transportation while monitoring a patient’s progress during their stay.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my daughters, husband and dogs. I love to run, hike, camp, and be outdoors.
