    Hello APHON community! ONCC is always looking for new ways to serve oncology and related specialty nurses through certification and other credentialing programs. Thanks for the question/suggestion regarding a specific hematology program. We do not currently have this program, but we can certainly put it on the list for us to explore. Keep the ideas coming and feel free to send any suggestions to me through the APHON community or at or Thanks!

    We have a few nurses that just work in hematology and have never worked in ONC/SCT.  Wondering if anyone knows if ONCC has ever thought of a specific certification exam just for hematology?
