Hi everyone! I’m transferring from outpatient infusion to an outpatient oncology unit. What apps or onc books/resource materials can you recommend? Also any advice as well? I’ve been a nurse for 15 years. I’ve done chemo inpatient over ten years ago. Thanks so much!!

I am going from an outpatient oncology clinic to outpatient infusion. I am sure each outpatient clinic does things differently but I worked for two physicians doing symptom management, oral chemo teaching and monitoring along with following our patients on treatment. That is just a glimpse into the day in the life of working the clinic. Good luck to you!

Chemocare.com to learn your drugs. 

An ons.org membership gets you monthly journals and discounts on your chemo/bio certification as well as OCN certification, which your facility may reimburse you for. Core Curriculum for Oncology Nursing was the most helpful textbook I could find, and you get a discount with the ONS membership. If your facility lets drug reps visit, talk to them about free books they may be able to order for you.

Thank you so much for the info! Today is my last day of training! I’ll be on my own next week! I definitely feel a little bit more confident. :)
