Beth Waite, MSN, RN, BMTCN

Director of Nursing Services

As the Director of Nursing Services, Beth’s top priority is to ensure patients have a safe and supportive experience while receiving their care at any of WVCI’s locations. Responsible for overseeing medical assistants that room patients and take vitals to the infusion nursing teams that administer chemotherapy, Beth sees her role as an advocate for both the patients and staff.

“I believe in creating space at the decision-making table for all members of the care team. ‘No Decision about us, without us’ means that nurses, patients, and caregivers should be involved in deciding care.”

Positive and collaborative, Beth knows the benefit of developing a strong process to ensure improved patient care and has been putting it into practice for over 11 years as she’s dedicated herself to oncology nursing.

Prior to joining the WVCI team, Beth was the Senior Nurse Manager of Hematology and Nurse triage for the City of Hope in California. While there, she specialized in hematology and transplant and earned her master’s degree in nurse leadership.

Excited to be back in the PNW; when Beth isn’t at work or working toward her doctorate in nurse leadership, she can be found tooling around on her bike, checking out the farmers' markets and craft shops. In her free time, she enjoys cross-stitching, knitting, board games, and gardening. She’s looking forward to her husband and Jack Russell Terrier Mix, Mona, finally making up to Eugene to join her.
