Interested in adding your voice to thousands of other oncology nurses? ONS educates decision-makers on the latest issues and the role of the nurse in healthcare, and is making a difference for nurses in public policy and health. Join the effort, be a part of the discussion, and make a difference with colleagues and the profession, as well as patients, research, education, and workforce. Nurses will receive:

  • Weekly Articles of Interest
  • Monthly Health Policy Blogs
  • Action Alerts on important policy issues
  • Activities with ONS chapters

It’s imperative that leaders hear from their constituents. Nurses are the most trusted healthcare providers for 17 years in a row. As a powerful force in healthcare, nurses need to be heard. To be included in the capitol connections mailing list, contact Alec Stone, ONS Public Affairs Director.
