Specialized Oncology Nurse
The Specialized Oncology Nurse is one who has a combination of expanded education focused on cancer care and experience, such as two years in a setting where the primary focus is cancer care delivery. The Specialized Oncology Nurse might acquire specialty education through a variety of ways; for example, enrolment in an undergraduate nursing program, completion of an Oncology Certificate Program, distance specialty education (such as offered in Adult and Pediatric Oncology Nursing); or registration in and completion of the certification exam offered by the Canadian Nurses Association and attainment of the distinction CON(C).
The Specialized Oncology Nurse is one who works in a specialized inpatient setting, such as an oncology unit, or bone marrow transplant unit, or in an ambulatory setting where focused on the delivery of cancer care, or in a screening program, or in a supportive care setting, or community setting offering palliative care. There are many environments where the enhanced specialty knowledge and skill can be utilized to manage symptoms and side-effects of treatment, counsel patients in coping strategies, teach self-care behaviours, and monitor the responses to treatment and nursing interventions.
