The interviews that follow give insight into the impact certification can have on the trajectory of an oncology nurse’s career, as well as the first steps to take on that path.
Nurses have a plethora of opportunities available to them beyond clinical practice. At times, these pathways are surprising and far from straight. Here are three career trajectories as told by fellow nurses.
As a nurse recruiter with the Talent Acquisition Group at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY, Mari Moriarty, RN, MA, stresses that creating an effective resume is the gateway to getting the job you want. Your resume must communicate to recruiters and hiring managers that you are an intelligent and well-organized individual, and so your resume should be easy-to-read, organized, and error free.
The importance of a job interview cannot be overstated. In most cases, applications will have just one hour to give a future employer confidence that they can perform the job duties and make a good colleague. Think of the interview in terms of three C’s: communication, confidence, and competition.
Becoming a published author in the medical landscape can be a rewarding and productive experience. There are many motivations to write. Publishing can help lay a foundation of scholarship on which research and funding opportunities can be built. Publishing can also be a powerful way to “join the conversation” of current topics, and express individual concerns and questions. But many nurses wonder: How do I get started?
Presenting the scope of your work in a concise and effective way—usually in the form of an abstract for your proposal or poster—to appeal to audience members can be daunting, but in reality it may be easier than you think.

With some unfinished legislative business such as appropriations bills to complete, Congress returned to Washington, DC, for a special work period between the election and the 2015 session in January. ONS is using this opportunity to raise awareness for cancer research funding on Capitol Hill.
Nurses are in high demand. Since 2000, the nursing profession has grown so steadily that it’s outpaced the growth of the U.S. population. Over the past decade, 500,000 new RNs joined the ranks, an increase of 24%.
When you apply for a job, you can expect poten­tial man­agers to take your online pres­ence into con­sid­er­a­tion. Employ­ers are wary of appli­cants who can­not be found on the Inter­net (What do you have to hide?), so not shar­ing any infor­ma­tion can be just as bad as appear­ing unprofessional.
