The Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation (ONCC) is seeking AOCNP®-certified nurses to serve on the AOCNP® RDS and Test Specifications Task Force. The purpose of the study is to update the identified knowledge and skills needed to competently practice as an oncology nurse practitioner. The AOCNP® RDS and Test Specifications Task Force will define the knowledge needed and tasks performed to competently practice. This information will be used to develop an internet-based survey to be distributed to all AOCNP®-certified nurses and develop a test content outline.
The Task Force will meet on April 30 and May 1, 2018, to develop the RDS, and on October 1 and 2, 2018, to create the Test Specifications. Both meetings will take place in Pittsburgh, PA. Nurses who are selected will be expected to attend both meetings.
In addition, participants’ travel, hotel, and meal expenses for the meeting will be paid by ONCC. Participation will NOT affect a nurse’s eligibility to renew current ONCC certification.
Participants must bring a laptop or tablet to the workshop.
Applications are due February 23.
