Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist Competencies
The Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist (OCNS) competencies emphasize the unique philosophy of practice for the OCNS specialty and the unique needs of patients with a past, current, or potential diagnosis of cancer. OCNSs are educationally prepared to provide advanced nursing care to meet the specialized physiologic and psychological needs of patients throughout the continuum of care, including cancer prevention and detection, cancer diagnosis and treatment, rehabilitation, survivorship, and end-of-life care.
