Title: Oncology nurses ... who are we?
Authors: Itano, Joanne
Issue Date: Apr 2004
Abstract: Oncology nursing has matured into a well-established specialty in nursing. The scope of practice for the oncology nurse is broad and spans the continuum of cancer care. Oncology nurses have important roles in all aspects of cancer care. The ONS is the largest organization of oncology professionals in the United States with a membership of about 30,000 and has contributed to the development of oncology nursing through its many educational programs, support of research, opportunities for networking, establishment of certification examinations, and development of an active foundation.
