Honor an Oncology Nurse

Do you know a nurse who has made a real difference in oncology nursing in your local area? Consider nominating them for one of many ONS awards, which honor ONS members who display a special commitment to their field. Most awards include a plaque, cash award, and reimbursement to attend the annual ONS Congress®. You can also honor a nurse by donating to the Oncology Nursing Foundation in their name.
