Earn Your Chemotherapy Provider Card

ONS offers two routes to earning a chemotherapy provider card.

  1. Nurses who have knowledge of cancer basics and are in a position to regularly administer chemotherapy and biotherapy should take the ONS/ONCC Chemotherapy Biotherapy Certificate Course, which provides 16 contact hours, an ONCC certificate of added qualification, and a provider card.
  2. Nurses who are new to oncology, administering or planning to administer chemotherapy or biotherapy on a less-frequent basis, or caring for patients receiving chemotherapy should take the Chemotherapy Biotherapy: Fundamentals of Administration Course, which provides 9.1 contact hours and a chemotherapy provider card.
