It may sound cliché but it is true. A career taking care of cancer patients is a calling for most all of us. It’s much more than a job. Each of us has a unique story that brought us to Compass Oncology but those stories usually share common themes of care, compassion, and commitment.
Our nursing management team shares their thoughts about working at Compass in these videos below, including what they look for when seeking the next Compass team member. Their heart and passion for the work they do is clear and it very likely may mirror yours if you have a desire to work at Compass.
No matter the role each Compass team member serves in, the goal is the same: to provide the best care possible for each and every one of our patients. Whether we are a nurse holding our patient’s hand, or a scheduler on the phone finding an appointment that fits into a patient’s schedule, we are deeply connected to our patients and do what we can to help.
If this sounds like you, please reach out to us. We can’t wait to hear your story.

Compass is part of the community. And our patients can feel that. They see us supporting local non-profits that support cancer patients. They see us sponsoring blood drives and oncology support groups. They see our providers making presentations in person and online. They see and hear our advertising as we do our best to connect to our community. We are embedded in neighborhoods, standing ready when our neighbors need us most.
Sometimes we are asked: “Why do you do it?”
The answers are as unique as the stories that brought us to work with cancer patients at Compass. The common thread is a simple yet powerful statement, embedded in the heart of our collective mission…
