Author(s):
Hockett, Keri
Author Details:
Keri Hockett, Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Sarasota, Florida, USA
Abstract:
This presentation will describe the development of an oncology nursing internship program to recruit new nurses into the specialty. The development of the course, including the goals and objectives, will be presented. The internship is designed to use the ONS core curriculum while covering the ONCC test blueprint for the OCN exam. The ONS Cancer Chemotherapy Course is also taught as part of the comprehensive program. The internship consists of six weeks of class time, two days per week, combined with floor preceptorship an additional two days per week. After week six, all remaining orientation is with the preceptor on the unit. The internship is designed to accommodate the new graduate nurse as well as the experienced registered nurse who does not have oncology experience. The outcomes to be measured that will be discussed are applicant rate increase, retention rate, number of nurses who become members of a professional society, and number of nurses who become OCN in their fist year of eligibility. Lessons learned and what we would do differently will be shared.
