What a year it has been since we all gathered virtually last fall to reignite our power, passion, and purpose at ONS Bridge™. Although we will be gathered again virtually for the 46th Annual ONS Congress™, the mission this year is being a catalyst for innovative care. The spark within the catalyst begins with you, and you are deserving of meaningful self-care. 

You have poured endless amounts of time and effort both directly and indirectly, into caring for vulnerable patients with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic. We salute you and applaud your efforts. Now it’s time for you to reflect on your own self-care modalities. ONS Congress has a lot in store that will nourish you holistically. Begin this year’s ONS Congress with our opening keynote: Oncology Nursing: Catalyzing Hope and Care. Join Theresa Brown, PhD, BSN, FAAN, as she encourages you and reminds you that you are an inspiration. 

The virtual ONS Congress platform allows you to connect and interact with oncology nursing colleagues from around the world in real time. You will have a chance to ask the presenters questions during the live Q&A during the sessions. Also, engaging with fellow attendees and exhibitors will provide both reflective and synergistic opportunities.

Lastly, do not forget the wonderful self-care sessions that are available at this year’s ONS Congress.  Brought to you by the Oncology Nursing Foundation, there will be several 45- to 60-minute yoga sessions offered on several days and at multiple times. To participate in any of the yoga sessions, a separate $40 registration fee is required, which also grants you unlimited online access to the on-demand library offered through May 27, 2021.

We are excited for you to join us as we mobilize virtually, combine forces, and continue on the path of innovatively advancing care for patients with cancer.

There’s still time to register to join us for the virtual ONS Congress. Register today.
