As a registered nurse licensed in a state that requires continuing education credits for license renewal, I found NOEP through our state nursing organization. After studying a module or two of their range of oncology-related offerings, I was impressed with the thoroughness and practicality of the information, and the clarity with which it is presented. Underlying the academics is a sense of true caring for the cancer patient and significant others, as well. Because I'm officially retired as to employment and volunteer full-time in a youth program, I appreciate that NOEP provides its modules at no cost to me. That has significant impact on my budget!! NOEP is making a steady impact on nursing practice across the nation, which is so important as healthcare undergoes so much change.

NOEP is an excellent source of information for the general practice nurse. Each one of us has contact with many patients, and it's a rare day that we don't have multiple patients dealing with cancer for themselves, family members or friends. Our trusted input can build confidence and alleviate distress. Thank you for the timely information, helpful tips, updated resources, and practical applications to our everyday-world. NOEP is the go-to place for nursing oncology information!

Since the beginning of this organization, it has served as a key reference to nurses about cancer diagnosis, treatments, and resource for nurse educators. The chemotherapy app was unique when created and remains a valuable resource for nurses in need of reliable, real-time information while providing care.

Oncology is a field with daily news about new drugs, new research information and over all very challenging to deal with on daily basis. NOEP is there to keep nurses up to date on new information to better assist cancer patients!
Thanks for all the FREE continuing education

NOEP provides exceptional cancer-related education for nurses. While the primary focus is for nurses working across Texas, NOEP's on-line activities reach both nationally and internationally. I'm especially impressed with NOEP staff involvement with the community and proactive approach to developing the materials nurses want and need in a format most accessible to them. Bravo to NOEP!

NOEP had hepled me to assist clients; family; and myself concerning cancer care. Be it the need for seeking a diagnosis; treatment and pallitive care by providing educational resources for clinicians. The resources/courses are very detailed and complete. NOEP has provided a convenient venue for quality continued education and also an added impact on Texas communities as a resource for cancer screening, diagnosis and care

I took advantage of a free Nursing CE unit on their website. The material covered was very detailed & complete. I especially appreciated the resources given for providers & patients. However, printing out those resources proved to be a problem. So when I emailed them with a comment regarding the possibility of having a direct link to these resource pages within the CE unit, I was delightfully surprised to not only receive a nearly immediate response, but also received a PDF in my e-mail with all the resource information to print out and or save for future reference! To top it off, they also took my suggestion to heart and added a link directly within the CE so others would be able to easily access the info in the future.
I would highly recommend them and I also want them to know that actively listening to & responding to their clients and customers is a top-notch way to provide great customer service! CWeller, RN

NOEP is one of the best kept secrets in Texas. I have used the resources on NOEP for myself and have assigned various online programs to nursing students to supplement the classroom. The information is up to date, the presentation is easy to interact with and the feedback from student is consistently positive. I have attended several seminars that NOEP has presented and the speakers are always outstanding and I walk away feeling like I really received alot for the investment of my time and money. I would highly recommend ALL nurses in Texas to take advantage of NOEP offereings since ALL nurses in Texas will be caring for people with cancer - and there is no reason not to stay up to date! Thank you NOEP!

NOEP has made a huge impact on a grassroots level to educate, update and provide resources to Texas Nurses in caring for the cancer patient. The outcomes related to educating the nursing workforce has surely touched the lives of many patients and families. I have been involved with NOEP since 1992. I worked with them as the Oncology Nurse Specialist for 4.5 years. I met many volunteers throughout the State who have contributed countless hours to NOEP's mission. I have participated as a volunteer on the Steering Committee since moving to Houston in 1996. NOEP is phenominal. The result of their collected efforts with their volunteer base has allowed for maximum impact.
