Member Testimonials

I appreciate that ONS is dedicated to all aspects of cancer care—from advocating for government policies that benefit prevention efforts, to promoting patient and staff education and best practices, sharing groundbreaking nursing research interventions, celebrating survivorship needs, and supporting end of life care, ONS is my go-to resource every step of the way. I trust the resources and guidance ONS provide—ONS is the gold standard for oncology policy, practice, and professionalism.

I am so grateful for the many professional growth opportunities ONS has supported in my career. Opportunities ranging from publication to complementing my patient care with a plethora of resources. My ONS membership has been and will continue to be an integral feature of my oncology nursing practice.
