CRANBURY, N.J., Nov. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The AONN+ Foundation for Learning (AONN+ FFL) announced that its oncology navigator certifications have received the prestigious Magnet Recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

The ANCC’s Magnet Recognition Program distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous standards and is considered the highest recognition for nursing excellence. U.S. News & World Report’s annual showcase of “America’s Best Hospitals” includes Magnet recognition in its ranking criteria for the quality of inpatient care.

Oncology Nurse Navigator-Certified Generalist (ONN-CG) and Oncology Patient Navigator-Certified Generalist (OPN-CG), the 2 AONN+ FFL certifications, were created in response to increasing demands for a specific type of certification that distinguishes the knowledge, skills, and role of oncology navigators from that of other types of nursing certifications.

The purpose of these 2 certifications is to ensure that clinical nurse and patient navigators have the knowledge to competently demonstrate effective navigation services across the cancer care continuum within their scope of practice.

The ONN-CG and OPN-CG certifications are accredited through ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB), a wholly owned subsidiary of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association. ANCC accredits healthcare organizations that provide and approve continuing nursing education and accredits transition to practice programs and prepares nurses for new practice roles.
