When column names need to be prefixed with table names, you can define table alias name and use them to prefix column names as shown in the following select statement:

SQL> SELECT e.first_name, e.last_name, d.department_name
  FROM employees e INNER JOIN departments d 
  ON e.department_id=d.department_id;
FIRST_NAME           LAST_NAME            DEPARTMENT_NAME
