I just finished my first day training as a chemotherapy nurse on my unit where we have many patients with cancer.  I'm so excited to become a chemotherapy nurse.  I've just gotten my ONS certification :)  I had a great first day!  So happy to learn and discover more in nursing.

Any advice or comments appreciated!

It’s your first day I hanging chemo & you have your OCN? How do you have the 2000 hours of adult oncology nursing practice that you need to even apply to take the ONC test?

I think she means her first day giving chemo with an ONS chemotherapy/biotherapy provider card. It’s different from OCN.
