On tough days, keep calm – and ask for help

Advanced nurse practitioner in haemato-oncology Emma Masters says her nursing roles have helped her learn to cope with stress

Emma Masters is an advanced nurse practitioner in the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust’s Oak Centre for Children and Young People in Sutton, Surrey. After she qualified as a nurse in 1999 from the University of Surrey, her first role was on a medical ward with acute haematology patients. She developed a love of haemato-oncology nursing, an area she has worked in ever since. Her previous roles include sister on a haematology ward and haematology clinical nurse specialist, and she gained a master’s degree in advanced nursing practice in 2012. In June, she featured in a programme for the BBC Horizon documentary series, filmed at the Oak Centre, showing how specialist services are helping teenagers and young adults get on with their lives while undergoing cancer treatment.
