Abstract:
Since its creation more than twenty years ago, the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation (ONCC) has made significant advances in the development, administration, and evaluation of certification programs for oncology nurses. ONCC currently develops and administers certification programs in basic adult and pediatric oncology, and advanced certification for oncology clinical nurse specialists and oncology nurse practitioners. Over 24,000 oncology nurses hold one of five credentials offered by ONCC. The purpose of this presentation is threefold: 1) explore the 20-year growth of certification in oncology, 2) describe the geographical distribution of oncology certified nurses, and 3) summarize the results of a recent national survey on the perceived value of certification and future research questions of importance to nursing certification. This presentation will use the unique approach of presenting a series of maps showing the distribution of oncology certified nurses compared to the location and distribution of other relevant data such as Magnet hospitals, ONCC Advocates, ONS members, and RNs nationwide. Results of a recent American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS) survey examining the value of certification will be introduced. The ABNS survey, conducted with ONCC participation, was administered to a national sample of certified and non-certified nurses and a small sample of nurse managers. Study results include the perceived value of certification; the barriers, benefits and rewards of certification; and the impact of certification on lost workdays and retention. Responses from oncology nurses will be highlighted and compared to those of respondents in other specialties. In addition, this presentation will identify exciting future opportunities within ONCC in the areas of research.
