What is recommend for inpatient nurses and others who do not frequently work with chemotherapy and biotherapy?

If you do not need an extensive chemotherapy education, or are looking for more basic information, ONS offers the Fundamentals of Chemotherapy Biotherapy Administration online course. This course also offers an ONS Provider Card. Learn the difference between the two ONS Provider Card courses with this informational chart or this Chemotherapy Course Guide.

The intended learner for the certificate course is a nurse who has knowledge of cancer basics and is in a position to regularly administer chemotherapy and biotherapy. Although these characteristics are not prerequisites to participate in the course, the course does build on a foundation of cancer knowledge, with the learner earning a certificate of added qualification upon successful completion.

The course is not an introductory program and should not be used as a first step in orientation for nurses with little or no understanding of the use of chemotherapy and biotherapy.
