ONCOLOGY NURSING FOUNDATION REDIRECTS ITS PURPOSE IN SUPPORTING ONCOLOGY NURSES
Oncology is a challenging field for nurses. Here, they’ll encounter patients, families, and caregivers going through a difficult situation of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty brought about by disease, diagnosis, and treatment.
That’s why in support for the hardships and obstacles faced by nurses in the field by advancing the profession and the future of care for cancer patients, the Oncology Nursing Foundation, a nonprofit, tax-exempt, charitable organization formerly known as the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) Foundation, has recently changed its name to solely encapsulate the organization's longstanding focus and goals.
The organization, which is directly supporting oncology nurses both nationally and internationally, is uncompromisingly straightforward in its pursuit to provide safer and more effective cancer care for their patients through continued education scholarships, research grants, and career development funding.
"This name better reflects what has always been the Foundation's mission: supporting oncology nurses in cancer nursing excellence," Oncology Nursing Foundation President Cynthia LeBlanc, EdD, said. "Strengthening oncology nursing education, research initiatives, and leadership development will ultimately improve the lives of oncology nurses and every patient in their care."
