Kristi Bugg B.S., R.N. (to be in May), O.C.N. (2 years from now)


It's official! I got my first nursing job at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. What a relief to know that I will be starting my dream career in oncology at such an awesome hospital.
FYI: O.C.N. means Oncology Certified Nurse

Do you just have to get two years under your belt or do you have extra training along with your job?

10 billion 12 hour shifts is all it takes.

I have to have a minumum of 12 months of experience as an RN and 1,000 hours of oncology nursing practice (on the floor) within a 30 month time period in order to qualify to take the OCN exams. I also have to get my chemo certifications before taking the exam, in which I will have to attend some classes/seminars to learn how to give chemo (which will take approx 2 years)and then practice while I'm at work. So, yeah, I will be doing continuing education for a while still.

Congrats.

And DARN, I could have got $2500 if you signed at StJohns, of course you know about the $7500 you would have got.
