ONS Congress® is one of my favorite times of the year. Where else can you network with professionals from across the country and earn up to 25 nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) contact hours at the same time? 

 ONS Congress offers multiple tracks to meet your individualized learning needs. These tracks include Advanced Practice, Clinical Practice, Management/Staff Education, Radiation, and Research. It does not matter what your role or expertise is—we urge you to personalize your schedule to get the most out of your conference experience. 

The roundtable networking sessions are excellent ways to meet other ONS members and learn about current trends and other topics in oncology. Facilitated by subject matter experts, these sessions provide opportunities to make professional connections, discuss trends, and explore ideas that you can take back to your practice and institution.  

The Learning Hall is another destination that should not be missed. You will be able to learn about new products and initiatives from industry and advocacy exhibitors and attend non-NCPD presentations that feature multiple hot topics affecting oncology nurses across the country. Don’t forget about the ONS Campus where you can learn more about all that ONS has to offer and purchase publications and merchandise. To help your brain unwind from all this learning, you can visit the Zen Den and prioritize your well-being.  

As you can see, there are many ways to earn contact hours at ONS Congress. To receive your well-deserved NCPD contact hours for your ONS Congress participation, you will need to complete your conference evaluation by 11:59 pm ET, May 16, 2024. Full instructions will be provided on the ONS Congress mobile app, available in April. 

The ONS Congress planning team has been working hard to bring content for every nurse and role to this conference. We are so excited for you and your team to join us at the 2024 ONS Congress in Washington, DC. It is an event that you do not want to miss. We hope to see you there! 

Make your plans to register by March 7, 2024, to save with early-bird pricing.
