Nurse Training

At Winship, we invest in keeping oncology nursing staff current and informed with a number of programs and courses to continue their education.

Annual Winship Oncology Nursing Symposium

The Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University hosts an oncology nursing symposium annually. The symposium will update health care professionals on the emerging trends in oncology nursing clinical practice and research, and will provide participants with practical strategies and hands-on tools to improve their nursing practice. The symposium highlights local, national and international speakers. The course offers contact hours through Emory Healthcare, an approved provider unit of continuing nursing education by the Georgia Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

Winship Oncology Education Series

The Winship Oncology Nursing Education Series provides monthly opportunities for professional growth and development for Emory oncology nurses.

The course offers 1.0 contact hour through Emory Healthcare, an approved provider unit of continuing nursing education by the Georgia Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

"New to Oncology" Course

The New to Oncology orientation course was developed to provide nurses with minimum of 2 years of clinical experience and new to oncology educational content related to the specialty. This orientation was designed to supplement the standard departmental nursing orientation and to increase the cancer care knowledge and skills of newly hired nursing staff. This program starts with an overview of cancer and goes through the trajectory of care, ending with survivorship.

Winship Nursing Grand Rounds

The Winship Nursing Grand Rounds are held once a quarter. Although topics are often in relation to oncology, the drive for agenda selection is much more global, such as new future directions of and legislative actions affecting healthcare.
