Become a McGrath Breast Care Nurse

McGrath Breast Care Nurses are registered nurses who are specially trained to manage the care of people with breast cancer throughout the course of their treatment. A McGrath Breast Care Nurse usually has a background in oncology, breast care or women’s health.

If you’re interested in becoming a McGrath Breast Care Nurse, you will require relevant postgraduate qualifications in breast care nursing or cancer nursing. In addition, all McGrath Breast Care Nurses have a genuine desire to make a difference and support families undergoing a breast cancer treatment by providing them with physical, psychological and emotional support.

Why I became a McGrath Breast Care Nurse

Sam Moules – Metastatic McGrath Breast Care Nurse since 2016

“Trying to help people with cancer is the most satisfying thing. I get touched by it every day. Once a patient is told that their breast cancer has spread, it’s ‘oh my god, I’m going to die.’ They have to go through the grief, the loss of control to come to a stage where they learn to accept that metastatic breast cancer is now a part of me, a part of the rest of my life. We’re there to keep them disease-free or disease-stable for as long as possible. Trust in any relationship, you have to build over time and it’s the little things that I probably do that go a long way for them.”
