Scope and Standards of Oncology Nursing Practice

The book Oncology Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice is a dedicated resource for RNs, graduate-level prepared RNs, and advanced practice RNs who care for people with cancer across the care continuum. By outlining how practitioners at all levels can work together, ONS provides detailed information about the scope of oncology practice along with standards of practice and professional performance. Of note is the addition of an ONS Board of Directors–approved definition of oncology nursing.

Oncology Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice delivers clear expectations for nurses at any level who care for people with cancer and can be used to develop position descriptions, performance appraisals and institutional policies and procedures, continuing education needs, topics for quality improvement processes, and research to validate oncology nursing practice outcomes.
