OCN Review Course

Are you considering becoming certified in oncology nursing, or do you want to increase your knowledge base in oncology nursing? If so, this course is for you! The course is based on the ONCC OCN© test blueprint and will provide you with valuable information to help you prepare to sit for the OCN© exam. Why certify? Because certification is the formal recognition of specialized knowledge, skills, and experience in nursing. It is demonstrated by achieving standards identified by a nursing specialty to promote health outcomes. Certification assures the public that a nurse has completed all eligibility criteria to earn a specific credential. It also promotes the development of specialty nursing by establishing minimum competency standards and recognizing those who have met the standards. Certification in oncology nursing can validate your specialized knowledge, increase your confidence in your abilities to provide specialty care, contribute to your personal satisfaction, and demonstrate your commitment to your specialty and your patients. Certification also may increase your professional opportunities and enhance your career mobility. Join your professional colleagues who have made the commitment to certification in oncology nursing.
