Oncology Nursing Society's initiative to establish best practice


A project team was formulated to create evidence-based oncology nurse generalist competencies (ONGCs) to establish best practices in competency development, including high-risk tasks, critical thinking criteria, and measurement of key areas for oncology nurses.


This article aims to describe the process and the development of ONGCs.


This article explains how the ONGCs were accomplished, and includes outcomes and suggestions for use in clinical practice.


Institutions can use the ONGCs to assess and develop competency programs, offer educational strategies to measure proficiency, and establish processes to foster a workplace committed to mentoring and teaching future oncology nurses.
