Oncology certification review course

Oncology nursing is the specialty for caring for patients with the diagnosis of cancer. Types of patients include those with solid tumors such as lung, breast, prostate, colon cancer, and patients with liquid tumors (of the blood or marrow) such as lymphoma, leukemia, and multiple myeloma. The specialty of oncology is one of the most rapidly growing areas of medicine, as well as it boasts one of the richest of nursing research worldwide. Care of the oncology patient is ever changing, multifaceted, and dynamic. Patients may receive interventions that include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, hormonal therapy, stem cell transplant, and/or immune modulating therapies. Such therapies are daily becoming cutting edge.

About this review course

Certification review courses are offered 1-2 times each year. These are two-day courses with clinical experts teaching information to assist the oncology nurse with successful completion of the Oncology Nursing Society Certification Examination (ONSCE). As well, Community Health Network offers reimbursement for certification expenses. Oncology nurses must successfully meet basic Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) criteria to be able to sit for the certification examination. All nurses with at least two years of oncology experience are strongly encouraged to achieve oncology nursing certification.
