This program is designed for oncology nurses seeking a general oncology review in preparation for the ONCC® OCN Exam. We will focus on the following categories from the 2018 OCN blueprint: cancer continuum, oncology nursing practice, cancer treatment modalities, symptom management, palliative care, oncologic emergencies and psychosocial dimension of care. This is not meant to be an introductory course, but rather a comprehensive review of basic oncology nursing practice.
