Oncology Clinical Trials Nurse Competencies

The Oncology Clinical Trials Nurse Competencies have been updated to better reflect current OCTN practice. Significant changes have been made to the competencies including: addition of a more advanced level of competencies; creation of an OCTN model and framework; separation of required knowledge from expected behaviors; and, addition of recommended resources to aid in knowledge and competency development.

Developed with both novice and more experience clinical trials nurses in mind, these competencies can help individuals and organizations address role standardization and advancement, while providing a resource for position descriptions, training materials, evaluation processes, and professional development plans.
