Kristin Wasley is a nurse practitioner in the Surgical Oncology unit of City of Hope Chicago. Wasley was excited to begin her work at City of Hope in August 2012. "At City of Hope I have the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing surgical oncologists in cancer care and am privileged to be part of a team that puts patients first."

Wasley received a bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point; an associate’s degree in applied science, nursing, from William Rainey Harper College; a bachelor’s degree in nursing from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; and a master’s degree, family nurse practitioner from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Wasley began her nursing career at Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit. She completed clinical rotations in Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Urgent Care at the Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Wasley feels at home delivering care at City of Hope, and enjoys the relationships she builds with her patients. "City of Hope is really a place that 'walks the walk' when it comes to empowering patients. I believe that patients should always be in charge of their health care options, and it is my responsibility to help them understand all the facts and data as they make decisions. I want each patient to feel informed and confident in their care."

When Wasley is not assisting patients, she enjoys outdoor activities—such as fishing, kayaking, gardening—and spending time with her husband and daughter.

Patient ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
