Hi everyone, I recently graduated and passed boards for my RN after 12+ years as an LPN. I will be starting training in a new position in med/surg ONC overflow and would appreciate any advice from those with experience in this area. I am searching online for some type of oncology nursing cheat sheet/ pocket guide to keep with me until I am more experience, but am having trouble finding one. Does anyone use one or know of one? Thanks in advance!
OCN for eight years, both inpatient acute and now outpatient ambulatory infusion. No frequently used pocket guide I'm aware of but your Oncology Drugs handbook will be your best friend for a long time! Best of luck you'll be great Im sure!
Check out the Oncology Nursing Society website. They have some great info. There's also continuing education (but I think there's a fee involved). Cancer.net is another website with some good info. If you need specific information on diagnosis or drugs once you are working on the floor medscape.com (free), and uptodate.com (free if your facility uses it and you create a login while at work) have detailed info to help you out.
