Return to top
NORTON - April Martin has earned certification as an oncology nurse. Martin, a registered nurse at Wellmont Health System's Southwest Virginia Regional Cancer Center, demonstrated practice in cancer care and passed a training course and written exam to achieve certification. Because certification in oncology nursing is based on current professional practice, it validates that a nurse's knowledge is up to date on the latest treatments available to cancer patients. With her certification, Martin receives the OCN designation as part of her title. Martin joins two other certified oncology nurses at Southwest Virginia Regional Cancer Center, Nancy Smith and Missy Mullins. The Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation handles certification for oncology nurses. ONCC is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties and the National Commission for Certifying Agencies.
