In the ever-evolving field of hematology-oncology, nurses must maintain current and highly specialized knowledge to provide the best care to these patients. Oncology nursing certification provides validation of the specialized knowledge and experience required for competent performance.
This certification caters to the formal recognition of the specialized knowledge, skills and expertise to promote optimal patient care. This certification program provides the tangible evidence that nurses have the knowledge and have undergone stringent training required to effectively provide competent care to patients experiencing the complex problems associated with a diagnosis of cancer throughout the disease continuum.
