Peggy Hollingsworth, RN, OCN
Clinical Support & Case Review Nurse

How long have you been a nurse?
21 years

Why did you become a nurse?
To have a career where I could make a difference in someone’s life and health.

What is your role at eviti, Inc.?
I review chemotherapy and radiation treatment plans for cancer patients all over the USA.

How does your role at eviti impact patients differently than working with patients in the clinical setting?
Despite that I no longer provide hands-on care, I am making sure that the care they are receiving is appropriate. Also, I assist in getting the approval for clinical trials. Without clinical trials, we would not advance in providing better healthcare options to the patients who need it the most!

What do you enjoy most about your job?
Every day is a learning experience. I have learned so much since joining eviti!

How has nursing changed over the last 10 years?
Many nurses are getting advanced degrees in nursing and providing more independent care for their patients. NPs are now seen in all areas of nursing.

What advice do you have for others who are considering becoming a nurse?
It is a great career! Work hard. The payoff is priceless. When you do something you love, it becomes your passion.
