Oncology nurse leaders are needed to prepare for future changes in cancer care nursing, nursing education, and research. Following a review of the healthcare and business literature, the ONS Leadership Competencies were created to define the role of the oncology nurse leader. Whether working at the bedside, as a manager, or as a member of a national or international board of directors, oncology nurses are viewed as leaders within their practice. The ONS Leadership Competencies will provide a means for self-assessment and a foundation for future leadership education.
