Cancer Center Transplant Coordinator Receives National Certification

MORGANTOWN, WV— Londia Goff, R.N., B.S.N., O.C.N., a transplant coordinator for the Bone Marrow Transplant and Hematologic Malignancy Program at the West Virginia University Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, has received the highest certification in her field.

Goff recently passed the Hematopoietic Transplant Coordinator national certification exam.  Administered by the National Marrow Donor Program, the exam tests a candidate’s knowledge and experience in various content areas, including clinical management, pre-transplant patient education and searching for an unrelated donor match.

“Londia has achieved a truly noteworthy accomplishment,” says Michael Craig, M.D., interim director of the BMT/HM program.  “It shows that she has attained a core level of competence in her field and she is definitely an asset to our transplant program.”

Goff joins an elite group of 173 transplant coordinators worldwide who’ve passed the national exam.
