With more than 35,000 members, the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) is the largest international community of cancer nurses. ONS is committed to promoting excellence in oncology nursing and the leading the transformation of cancer care. Since 1975, ONS has provided a professional community for oncology nurses, developed evidence-based education programs and treatment information, and advocated for patient care, all in an effort to improve quality of life and outcomes for patients with cancer and their families.
ONS’s largest professional development conference, the ONS Annual Congress, provides attendees, including federal employees, educational opportunities beyond compare. Sessions focus on critical topics like symptom management, cancer treatments, screening guidelines, drug shortages, oral chemotherapy, genetics and genomics, and much more.
Nurses who care for patients with cancer depend on quality educational opportunities for their professional development and contact hours required for their licenses. In addition, cancer care is constantly changing and evolving. It is imperative that nurses have access to the education and information they need to stay current on the latest developments to ensure their patients receive the quality care they need and deserve.
