Deanna Hunt, APRN-CNPThe James Cancer Center
A nurse practitioner is extensively trained to treat illness or disease and to prescribe medication to their patients. They work on teams with a licensed physician, but can treat patients with significant autonomy. Nurse practitioners work in a variety of settings, including primary care and various other medical and surgical specialties.
- Obstetrics & Gynecology
- Ovarian Cancers
- Gynecologic Cancers
- Cervical Cancer
- Uterine Cancers
I am a certified nurse practitioner with clinical experience in gynecologic oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology and more. I currently work in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at The James, which specializes in all gynecologic cancers, including ovarian, cervical, endometrial, vulvar and vaginal.
After receiving my master’s degree in nursing from The Ohio State University, I completed a year-long competitive oncology fellowship at the OSUCCC – James as one of six nurse practitioner fellows. That opportunity led to my current position with The James, where I perform physical exams, manage medication and chemotherapy plans, and work closely with physicians to provide the best possible care to every patient.
Working at The James has also afforded me the ability to stay up to date on unique clinical trials and collaborate with the clinical trials team. I enjoy being able to make a difference in the lives of others, and that’s all thanks to the amazing support of our physicians and staff.
