certification, communication

I am writing in response to the article “Relationships Between Certification and Job Perceptions of Oncology Nurses” (Hughes et al., 2001), which was published in the January/February issue of Oncology Nursing Forum. The authors should be commended for their interest in exploring the impact of oncology certification on oncology nurses’ job perceptions. However, as an oncology certified nurse (OCN®), I was disappointed with their conclusion that certification did not have a significant impact on nurses’ job perceptions.
