Description

The essential resource for defining oncology nursing practice at all levels!

The 21st century has seen unprecedented innovations in oncology, leading to improved cancer prevention and control, symptom management, and patient outcomes. Oncology nursing practice must continually evolve to meet the challenges and opportunities that these advances present for people at risk for or diagnosed with cancer, and the Oncology Nursing Society is committed to providing guidance and direction to the profession.

Developed to augment existing standards of nursing practice, Oncology Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice addresses practice requirements and expected competencies for oncology practitioners at the RN, graduate-level–prepared RN, and advanced practice RN levels. This essential resource also defines the history and scope of the oncology nursing role, ethical provisions relevant to practice, and current trends in oncology and oncology nursing. The comprehensive framework presented will aid nurses, administrators, legislators, and others in shaping professional development, position descriptions and performance appraisals, institutional policies, healthcare models and policy, research priorities, regulatory review, and consumer input on nursing quality.
