May Is Oncology Nursing Month

As an oncology nurse, you are a source of strength for your patients and their loved ones. Your expertise and compassion provide hope and comfort for those facing the unimaginable.

That's why we celebrate you, the oncology nurse, this May and every month after.

"[Oncology nursing] has made me grateful, humble, appreciative of even the littlest things. It has taught me that unconditional love, strength, faith, and hope are forces that keep us going. That we are one big family requiring the resources and skills of each other, and that we are strong, resilient and determined as human beings.

Honor an Oncology Nurse

Do you know a nurse who has made a real difference in oncology nursing in your local area? Consider nominating him or her for one of many ONS awards, which honor ONS members who display a special commitment to their field. Most awards include a plaque, a cash award, and reimbursement to attend the annual ONS Congress™.

You can also honor a nurse by donating to the Oncology Nursing Foundation in his or her name.
