Many PICU nurses have gone through the APHON provider course, initial skill validation and annual competencies. If the chemo is being given as part of an oncology diagnosis/protocol then an APHON provider is required to administer it. At least 1 RN checking chemo orders and medication needs to be APHON provider/chemo certified.
