Target Audience


Course Description

This three-day course is designed for oncology nurses seeking a general oncology review in preparation for the ONCC® OCN Exam and BMT oncology nurses seeking a review in preparation for the ONCC® Blood & Marrow Transplant Certified Nurse (BMTCN®) Exam. The first two days will focus on the following categories from the 2016 OCN blueprint: cancer epidemiology, health promotion and cancer screening, scientific basis for practice, treatment modalities, symptom management, psychosocial care, oncologic emergencies, palliative/end-of-life care and survivorship. This is not meant to be an introductory course, but rather a comprehensive review of basic oncology nursing practice. The third day will focus on the following categories from the BMTCN® 2016 test content outline: indications for transplantation, types of trans-plants and stem-cell sources, pretransplant care, preparative regimens, stem-cell infusion, graft-versus host disease, post-transplant care, survivorship and professional practice. This is not an introductory course to BMT, but rather a com-prehensive review of BMT oncology nursing practice.
