    You can check Oncology Nursing Society chemotherapy biotherapy course. It is a 2 day course with CEU. You receive a chemotherapybiotherapy provider card after successfully passing the test. The course does not certify you to administer chemotherapy. It validates that you have the theoretical foundation needed to safely administer cytotoxic and biotherapeutic drugs. It is up to your employer to certify that you are competent.
