Oncology nurse navigation is a supportive service offered to cancer patients and their families. There are specific skills and knowledge new navigators and program leaders need to be aware of in order to develop, grow, and sustain a navigation program. After conducting a role delineation study, the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) developed the Oncology Nurse Navigator Competencies in 2013. The core competencies were updated in 2017 to include both novice and expert categories of knowledge, skills, and tasks needed to successfully fill the role of the oncology nurse navigator (ONN). The competencies are divided into 4 main categories: coordination of care, communication, education, and professional role.
