Join us at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in downtown San Antonio, TX, for the 48th Annual ONS Congress® from April 26–30, 2023! Network with oncology nurses and researchers across the country who are dedicated to providing optimal patient care and revolutionizing cancer research—just like you. Invigorate your passion and revitalize your practice—the 2023 ONS Congress will rejuvenate and refresh your mind so that you can provide the care that your patients need.  

What to Expect 

Attend sessions and view posters presented by your peers, receive nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) contact hours, interact with industry leaders and experts in our Learning Hall, and practice nursing well-being in the Zen Den. 

With sessions covering advanced practice; clinical practice; leadership, management, and education; radiation; and research, there’s something for everyone. Each session identifies the associated Individual Learning Needs Assessment (ILNA) categories to assist you in maintaining your Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation certification. Check the official schedule ahead of time to determine which sessions you’d like to prioritize. 

But save a few hours to explore San Antonio in your downtime: Fiesta San Antonio, an annual celebration of the city’s cultures, is occurring from April 20–30, 2023. 

Earn NCPD Contact Hours 

At ONS Congress, you’ll experience a multitude of learning opportunities and be able to earn up to 50* NCPD contact hours*.   

And the learning doesn’t stop there. Once you return home from San Antonio, you’ll be able to access select recorded educational sessions for a limited time, allowing you to earn even more NCPD contact hours. 

*Approximately 24.5 contact hours are available for attending ONS Congress sessions, with approximately 32 additional contact hours available for viewing poster presentations on your own time.
