    Is there certification for radiation oncology geared towards radiation oncology nursing? I was just at a staff meeting and top leadership said there was not but I thought I saw it somewhere.

    Hello Elsie,
    ONCC does not offer a radiation oncology nursing certification, and at this point recommends the OCN exam to nurses in radiation oncology who wish to pursue certification.  ONS offers a continuing education online course "ONS/ONCC Radiation Certificate Course" that results in a certificate, but it is not a nationally accredited certification.
    I hope this helps!
