Oncology nursing on oncology nurse education and practise

Author(s): Assad Khan

Oncology nursing is a highly specialised area of nursing that calls for advanced training and education after initial preparation. In 2015, the developing nation of Rwanda began training oncology nurse specialists. This essay illustrates the program's establishment process. The direction for the preparation of this study came from selected literature and input from knowledgeable oncology nurses. Additionally, the University of Rwanda's oncology nursing curriculum and the websites of organisations dedicated to oncology nursing were examined. When they are properly educated, oncology nurses can play a significant role in the treatment of cancer patients as well as cancer preventive initiatives. Others who seek to create a programme similar to Rwanda's masters in oncology nursing could benefit from Rwanda's expertise.
