Beads Mark Career Milestones for Pediatric Oncology Nurses

Danielle Barone, PSA (left), patient Mariah Gamez, and Edith Garvey, RN, enjoy the new beads they received on the pediatric oncology unit at Banner Desert Medical Center.

At Banner Desert Hospital at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, Ariz., patients with cancer and their nurses who work on the pediatric hematology/oncology unit mark their journeys with congratulatory beads.

Through the hospital’s Beads of Caring Program, nurses receive beads as they achieve career milestones. The beads can be used on bracelets, necklaces, or lanyards to celebrate accomplishments and to motivate nurses toward continuing their educations.

The Beads of Caring Program works in association with the pediatric oncology unit’s Beads of Courage Program, through which patients “earn” beads as they receive treatment to celebrate milestones in their personal journeys.
