Oncology Nursing Certificate
The online certificate program in Oncology Nursing is designed to provide in depth knowledge and skills in cancer care. Applicants may be BSN-prepared or MSN-prepared (both APN and non-APN) nurses seeking academic, graduate-level courses to expand knowledge in cancer care. This 10-credit (4 course) program covers the continuum of cancer care—from genetic risk assessment and testing/primary prevention, disease and symptom management (acute care), and palliative and hospice care.
