Nursing is a vital health profession. In almost all clinical and hospital settings, nurses offer primary palliative care. Nurses are recognized for their strong philosophy of care for a wide spectrum of disorders. No matter the sickness, condition, or clinical situation, palliative care is considered essential in nursing practice. Palliative care nursing is the provision of palliative care services to cancer patients and their families, regardless of whether cancer can be cured or not. A large body of evidence shows that early palliative care nursing integration improves the quality of life and survival of cancer patients. Due to the intricacy of cancer, the landscape of cancer care is shifting. Cancer is a life-threatening disease with a high mortality rate. Oncology nurses' skills and experience are vital in providing specialized patient care and fulfilling the needs of patients and their families. The current study examines the shifting environment of palliative care nursing in oncology. However, new palliative care nursing approaches are required to adapt to the evolving cancer scenario.
