Abstract

Oncology Nursing Society's initiative to establish best practice

BACKGROUND:

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.

OBJECTIVES:

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

METHODS:

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

FINDINGS:

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.
