Oncology Nursing Review, Fifth Edition is an essential learning tool to help oncology nurses preparing for certification and/or recertification. Completely revised according to the latest OCN® Test Blueprint, it provides nearly 1,000 practice questions with comprehensive rationales. New to this edition are helpful page references to the classic text Cancer Nursing: Principles and Practice, Seventh Edition for more detailed information to help you prepare for the exam.

Organized according to the 11 areas tested on the OCN® Test Blueprint:

  • Health Promotion and Disease Prevention 
  • Screening, Early Detection and Diagnosis
  • Scientific Basis for Practice
  • Cancer Treatment Modalities
  • Symptom Management
  • Psychosocial Dimensions of Care
  • Oncologic Emergencies
  • Sexuality
  • Survivorship
  • End of Life Care
  • Professional Performance

Included with the review guide is an online access code for JB TestPrep, our online interactive testing program. This web-based, customizable program includes the same multiple choice questions printed in the study guide. Need extra help on certain sections? JB TestPrep allows you to choose the number of questions you’d like to be tested on in each chapter. What’s more, you can choose a “practice exam” to see feedback on your response immediately, or a “final exam,” which hides your results until you have completed all the questions in the exam. Also compiled is your overall score. JB TestPrep: Oncology Nursing Review, Fifth Edition also sold separately.
