Cancer care is a dynamic field, and the role of oncology nurse navigators and patient navigators is always evolving. To stay up-to-date with the ever-changing nature of the cancer care continuum, it’s important for nurse and patient navigators to continue advancing their skill sets through professional development. Growth in your role is essential to securing confidence in yourself and confidence among your facility and patients.

Every professional has a responsibility to invest in themselves. AONN+ is committed to assisting in this investment by advancing the roles of oncology navigators and other members of the multidisciplinary care team, convening these professionals to discuss current and emerging topics, share best practices, and forge new relationships at our Annual and Midyear conferences.

Attending an AONN+ conference allows cancer professionals to learn from oncology and navigation thought leaders and connect with like-minded peers, while earning valuable continuing education hours (CEs). The upcoming 2021 AONN+ Midyear Virtual Conference, being held May 13-16, 2021, provides the unique opportunity to interact and learn from navigators and industry exhibitors from across the globe.

AONN+ provides additional opportunities to earn CEs through various activities and webinars that offer the knowledge and tools to help you provide optimal care to your patients. In these activities, you will discover resources like survivorship care plans, past AONN+ conference materials, and learning guides that provide CEs while preparing you for certification.

To assist in distinguishing your knowledge, skills, and role, the AONN+ Foundation for Learning offers the Oncology Nurse Navigator–Certified Generalist (ONN-CG) and the Oncology Patient Navigator–Certified Generalist (OPN-CG) certifications: the only accredited certifications dedicated specifically to the oncology navigation profession. Certification demonstrates commitment to professional growth and development and offers proof of our ability to assist patients through the continuum of care and provide quality patient outcomes.

As you continue to sharpen your navigator skills, share your knowledge by writing a piece for CONQUER: the patient voice, Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS), or the AONN+ blog. We invite all nurse and patient navigators, administrators, social workers, oncologists, and other members of the cancer care team to contribute.

Growth is an essential part of providing quality care to your patients. By participating in professional development opportunities, you are building confidence as a navigator and showing your dedication in taking a dynamic approach to cancer care. The result is invaluable, creating security in your role as a navigator.

At AONN+, we are continuously working to provide you with new learning opportunities, resources, and tools to assist you in your role. Discover how AONN+ works for you.
