    We work for a VNA and currently require each nurse to be current with the APHON Provider Course.  I’m interested in what other VNA’s do as well.

    ​​Good Morning-
    I am just wondering what other organizations are currently doing in regards to:
    Oncology specific certification-required/optional? Is this certification covered by your organization? What if the team member fails?
    Yearly Oncology Continuing Education hours?
    Any other mandatory requirements related to Pediatric Oncology
