Oncology Clinical Trials Nursing (CTN) Competencies
The Oncology Clinical Trials Nurse Competencies outlines the fundamental knowledge, skills and expertise required for novice clinical trials nurses to proficiently perform in this role. Developed by a team of ONS members who work in clinical trials, these competencies were the result of an analysis of current literature and practice, feedback from practicing CTNs, and expert review.
Designed with the novice CTN in mind, these competencies begin to address role standardization and can serve as a resource for the development of position descriptions, training materials, evaluation processes, and professional development plans.

Oncology Nurse Practitioner Competencies
This document outlines specialty entry-level competencies for Oncology Nurse Practitioners (ONPs) who care for adult and late adolescent patients throughout the continuum of cancer care. It should be used by nurse practitioners, educators, employers, physicians, nurses and anyone else who seeks to understand the role of the ONP.
This important guide was developed by a multi-organizational national panel convened by the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), that used a nationally vetted process to develop, conduct reviews, and revise the document. The ONP Competencies were reviewed and critiqued by 127 ONPs as well as twenty members of a national validation panel comprised of representatives of nursing organizations and NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers.
Clinical Nurse Specialist Competencies are also available.
