The Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation (ONCC) is seeking OCN®-certified nurses to serve on the OCN® 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 adult oncology nurse. The OCN® 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 OCN®-certified nurses and develop a test content outline.
Two volunteer opportunities are available.
Role Delineation Study Task Force
Twelve nurses will be selected for the Task Force. The Task Force will meet in-person at the ONCC office in Pittsburgh, June 25-26, 2020 and hold two virtual meetings in September. Participant's travel, hotel, and meal expenses for the in-person meeting will be arranged and covered by ONCC.
Telephone Interview Participants
Up to five nurses will be selected for telephone interviews with ONCC’s role study vendor, PSI. The interviews will take approximately one hour. There is no travel and or additional meeting requirement.
Participants must bring a laptop or tablet to the workshop.
Applications are due February 12.
