About ONS

Oncology Nursing Society

The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) is a professional organization of more than 39,000 members committed to promoting excellence in oncology nursing and the transformation of cancer care. As the main point of contact with patients and families, oncology nurses influence cancer care in all practice settings.

 

Nursing is a calling. And oncology nursing is a calling like no other. The collective, specialized experience and expertise that our nurses possess has the power to transform cancer care for the better, forever. This is our reason to be. We provide these amazing women and men with a community where they can learn, share, and flourish. Where they have a voice. And where they are celebrated.

What Conferences Will Be Hosted in 2021?

 

April 2021

ONS Congress

ONS Congress is the largest, most comprehensive oncology nursing event in the country. ONS Congress brings together a vast network of oncology professionals to share and celebrate innovations that will define the future of cancer care. 

At this time, we are hopeful that ONS Congress will be held in Washington, D.C. However, given current conditions and the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, ONS is planning for a virtual ONS Congress to occur on April 20, 22, 27 and 29, 2021. If conditions allow and we are able to move to an in-person event in Washington, DC on April 21-25, 2021, we will communicate those details accordingly.

ONS Bridge

ONS Bridge is a virtual conference designed to connect oncology nurses to resources and education through a mix of live and on-demand content. ONS Bridge will feature three days of top-notch educational sessions led by experts in the field, the ability to earn approximately 30 contact hours, opportunities to network and learn at industry events, a virtual exhibit hall, and on-demand offerings.

Each ONS Congress 2021 Exhibit Package includes a complimentary ONS Bridge Virtual Exhibit Package.
