Many oncology nurses have taken up nurse navigator roles which are second to their education and disease-specific training. They face big challenges: notably, a dearth of evidence-based resources or the professional standards that help them to develop effective programs. Laying the groundwork for greater support of nurse navigators, ONS launched the oncology nurse navigator (ONN) project in fall 2012. Come learn about the project’s development, including its role definition of an oncology nurse navigator, the creation of core competencies, and how these competencies are taking root across medical institutions.

1. Summarize the process involved in the development of the ONN competencies. 
2. Apply the ONN competencies to develop and grow oncology nurse navigation programs.

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