Bump!

I'm studying for the PCCN first, but I just finished my contract on an onc floor so now that I have my hours for the OCN again I want to do that as well. Assuming testing centers open!

I just got my OCN earlier this year. I studied pretty casually and just browsing through my materials for like a year until I signed up for my test. I actually sat down and took notes and studied for 2-3 weeks before my test date I think. I did go to a review class at my workplace.

In addition to the Core Curriculum for Oncology Nursing book and its associated Study Guide from ONS, I highly recommend these two books. The yellow one presents information in a concise structure as opposed to the detailed lengthy way in the Core Curriculum, so I’d prefer the yellow book. The white book has 2 practice tests with 150 questions each; they’re harder than the actual questions in the exam in my opinion, but I think it’s better that way than the other way around.

White book: https://www.amazon.com/OCN-Exam-Practice-Questions-Certified/dp/1627338780

Yellow book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1610723880/ref=sspa_mw_detail_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I took the ONS Review Bundle Courses and completed the ONCC Practice Tests. They offer one for free too.
