The new course provides entirely new content, new learning objectives, and new test items. Its primary focus is to provide and reinforce critical information for safe administration and to apply evidence to manage acute side effects and adverse events related to chemotherapy and biotherapy administration. The course isn’t the old content in an online format; rather, it is a more focused, intense course intended for those who will frequently administer chemotherapy and biotherapy.
The course is a non-degree granting program that provides instruction and training around a narrow set of knowledge, skills, and competencies associated with completion of a process, provision of a service, or fulfillment of continuing education requirements. Certificates indicate attainment of knowledge, something which cannot be provided without first establishing that level of knowledge.
