How long did you wait to get your OCN?

  1. 0 For those who have certification - how long did you wait after working in oncology to test? I know the minimum experience required by ONS probably wouldn't leave one with enough knowledge to be successful, so I'm curious.

    Right now I'm tentatively planning on the two-year mark, since I'll be chemo-certified at that point.

    I was working a little over a year and a half before I took the test.

    Good luck!
