“I decided to join CTCA because I fell in love with the culture of “it’s all about the patient,’” says Sandra Simmons is a nurse practitioner at CTCA at Southwestern Regional Medical Center.

An advanced oncology certified nurse, Simmons earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Webster University in Kansas City, Missouri, followed by a Master of Science in Nursing from University of Missouri at Kansas City. She also holds a diploma of registered nursing from Baptist System School of Nursing in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Prior to joining CTCA, Simmons worked as a clinical nurse practitioner for six years in a physician-owned oncology network in Tulsa. Before then, she spent over 10 years as an advanced nurse practitioner and clinical nurse in an oncology-based medical practice in Kansas City, where she also served as a nurse educator for two years.

Simmons joined CTCA in July 2013. She says she is honored to work with oncology patients and families at CTCA and to be their advocate: “I tell patients that I will not limit my care to just their cancer or physical needs, but will address all of their needs. I will not pretend that I know everything, but will be willing to access resources outside my area of expertise. “

When she isn’t working, Simmons enjoys spending time with her husband, whom she has been married to for five years.
