Standards and Reports

As the population of cancer survivors in the United States continues to grow, exceeding 14 million, nurses across the spectrum of health care will require competent standards when caring for patients during and after cancer. ONS standards of care provide the latest evidence-based information and guidelines to ensure the best possible outcomes at the highest levels of care. As a leading voice in oncology nursing, ONS is dedicated to providing these resources to nurses on the front line of cancer treatment and patient care.

The ONS-developed standards can be used throughout institutions and organizations to ensure quality care and a high level of education among nursing staff and other healthcare providers. Individuals interested in elevating their practice can employ ONS standards, apply them to their daily work, and encourage their coworkers and colleagues to do the same.
