Preparing for Practice: Educating the New Oncology Advanced Practice Registered Nurse

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can we close the educational gap for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) who are new to oncology? Because most APRN education is broad, there’s a lot that remains to be taught. Come hear some of the most unique solutions to closing the educational gap, and prepare yourself to think outside the box. 

You’ll learn about an online APRN oncology curriculum, a rare program. You'll also explore The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital's new advanced practice oncology fellowship, which is integrated with the ONS post-master’s curriculum. Both are cutting-edge ways to create more formal education and practice experiences, and you’ll dig deep, exploring their program rationale, logistics, and lessons learned. You’ll come away with new tools for implementing a needs assessment in your practice, instilling evidence-based practice, and changing the way you educate APRNs.  

1. Evaluate two different methods of educating oncology APRNs to determine an appropriate plan of action for creating an education program.  
2. Decide on the appropriate timing of when to initiate oncology-specific education and utilize established resources to make this education successful.  

This session qualifies for the following ONCC Individual Learning Needs Assessment (ILNA) categories.
