Hi I am also studying to take the OCN certification test in Sept.
If you can think of a good way to study on line, it would be interesting. How long have you been in oncology. I started a year ago and our policy states I have to be certified within 1 year

Have been nurse 6 years, first 5 as a traveler (that is another story in itself) but have been gradually increasing the amount of oncology patients I have been working with. Been on an actual oncology floor since July. No real protocol where I work about being OCN certified. Only a few are, mostly because of cost -- hospital doesn't pay for any part of certification. Am basically doing it to feel more knowledgeable / competent with taking care of cancer patients. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss ocn more.
