How long does a pediatric oncology nurse have to go to school for?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Herbert Duvivier
32 years experience in Hematology and Oncology
Years: Most nurses are graduates with a bachelor of science in nursing (bsn) which is a 4 year program. This allows them to be general nurses. Oncology specialization training can take an additional 1-2 years of on the job training. If wanted nurses can go back to school to receive a masters (2years) or nurse practitioners certificate (3years). Making the total between 4-7 school years plus training.
