Advanced Senior Lecturer N
Coordinator, Oncology Specialty Minor/Certificate Program
Adult Oncology Nurse Practitioner

Victoria Sherry, DNP, CRNP, ANP-BC, AOCNP holds a dual appointment as an adult oncology nurse practitioner for thoracic malignancies at the Abramson Cancer Center Penn Medicine and as an advanced senior lecturer at the School of Nursing. Education has played an essential role in her life, both inside and outside of the classroom. When she began her career as an oncology nurse practitioner in 2001, she also started teaching at the School of Nursing. Dr. Sherry’s parallel roles as a practitioner and educator allow her to share her accumulated knowledge and experience with her students, furthering the field of oncology and improving patient care.

Our primary goal is to equip students with the necessary skills to emerge as leaders in oncology nursing. This encompasses advocating for the unique needs of patients with cancer and their caregivers, providing education throughout the treatment trajectory, managing symptoms to enhance their quality of life, and fostering collaboration with interprofessional teams to improve outcomes and mitigate the impact of cancer on patients and families.
