AONN+ provides CE opportunities vital to the professional growth of the multidisciplinary healthcare team.
Cranbury, New Jersey (August 20, 2021)—The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is the leading organization for awarding continuing education (CE) credits in support of oncology patient navigation, awarding more than 25.5 CE credits during the first half of 2021 to over 8900 healthcare professionals.
Navigation is a vital source of support for oncology patients, and navigators apply a variety of clinical and professional skills to provide quality oncology care for patients. Because cancer care continues to evolve, as does the intensity of cancer care, nurse navigators and patient navigators play a crucial role in helping patients meet this challenge.
“Our goal in offering continuing education credits is to ensure that oncology nurse and patient navigators maintain and improve their skills and absorb new information that will allow them to better support patients. Our CE courses are a topmost request from the AONN+ members, and they build navigator confidence and expertise in their profession,” stated Emily Gentry, BSN, RN, HON-ONN-CG, OCN, Senior Director of Education and Program Development for the Academy.
AONN+ provides its members the opportunity to earn CEs through live and on-demand conferences, member-exclusive webinars, and monographs and articles published in the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS).
