"My experience with the Focused CE Series for the OCN Exam review was great because I was balancing a lot ... working and attending school full time, with a small one to tend to. The Oncology Focused CE Series allowed me the ability to view the week’s content based on my schedule and review, as often as I needed to. I like that the series was spaced out over 6 weeks, allowing time to read and fully understand week 1 topics before moving on to week 2. The webinar presenters covered the information very well and provided even more information verbally. I took great notes and was able to use them to help with studying. Good thing I did, because I passed the OCN Exam!" —  Ayana T., RN, MSN, FNP-C, OCN

"I didn't even know where to begin studying for the OCN exam; there was so much information to cover that it seemed overwhelming.  This program was the perfect way to organize my studying. The variety of reading, quizzes, and live webinars really helped keep it interesting and appeal to my different learning styles.  After completing the course I had the knowledge and confidence I needed to pass the OCN exam."    Lisa K., RN, BSN, OCN

Organizer - Focused CE Series


Focused CE Series combines live webinars with independent web-based study, creating a “virtual classroom” environment.  Tackling complex initiatives, we break them into key topics, and bring nationally known experts right into the attendee’s home, office or facility. Learners go through a multiple week engagement with the same small group of peers, so they can share practices and questions together in an interactive “two-way” webinar experience from wherever they live or work. Between webinars, learners complete independent online study modules to reinforce and apply their new learning and prepare for the next session.
