The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) has appointed Lori Brown to the new role of chief experience officer (CXO). Brown joins ONS with more than 18 years of combined marketing experience in retail, customer relations, and the healthcare industry. Brown will be the first CXO at ONS, focusing on enhancing customer relations and driving membership experiences for ONS’s nearly 40,000 oncology nurse members. Brown comes to ONS after spending 10 years at Highmark Health as the director of customer centricity and consumer experience. 
 
“ONS is pleased to welcome Lori Brown as its first CXO,” ONS Chief Executive Officer Brenda Nevidjon, MSN, RN, FAAN, said. “Lori’s extensive understanding of customer relations and the healthcare industry will help her guide the experience for ONS members and customers. As ONS continues to develop initiatives to support and elevate oncology nurses, Lori’s voice and vision will help us provide the best possible services to our members as they continue to care for patients with cancer throughout the country and around the globe.”
 
This newly created position will be responsible for providing executive oversight and leadership in strategizing, creating, and deploying member and customer experience initiatives throughout ONS. The CXO will work closely with ONS’s membership, customer service, marketing, and publications departments to ensure that the organization is meeting and exceeding the needs of ONS members while also identifying areas of opportunity and addressing potential gaps in the customer experience.  
 
“I am honored to have been selected as the chief experience officer for ONS,” Brown said. “It’s a privilege to be part of an organization that plays such a critical role in the transformation of cancer care. This is an incredibly fulfilling opportunity to give back as a professional to a cause I’m personally passionate about. I look forward to partnering with the executive leadership team and staff to contribute to the ONS mission by meeting the needs and exceeding the expectations for the members we serve.”

JULY 21, 2016—The American Academy of Nursing (AAN) announced its class of 2016 Academy fellows on June 24, 2016. Twelve ONS members were included in the 164 highly distinguished nurse leaders who will join the ranks of Academy fellows to be celebrated at AAN’s annual policy conference held in Washington, DC, from October 20–22, 2016. 
 
AAN fellows consist of more than 2,200 nurses who have distinguished themselves in areas of education, research, practice, or management. As health leaders, their goal is to enhance the quality of health and nursing, promote healthy aging and human development, and reduce health disparities and inequalities, among a number of other efforts to improve the health care of patients. 
 
The 12 ONS members selected to the 2016 AAN fellows represent oncology nurses from 10 different states, encompassing a number of oncology fields: Wendy Landier, PhD, RN, CRNP, PPCNP-BC, CPON®; Savitri Singh-Carlson, PhD, RN, APHN-BC; Mark Lazenby, PhD, APRN; Constance Visovsky, PhD, RN, ACNP; Joseph D. Tariman, PhD, RN, ANP-BC; Ellen M. Lavoie Smith, PhD, APN-BC, AOCN®; Sandra Lee Spoelstra, PhD, RN; Lisa Kennedy Sheldon, PhD, ARNP, AOCNP®; Anita Y. Kinney, PhD, RN; Cynthia Miller Murphy, MSN, RN, CAE; Jie Deng, PhD, RN, OCN®; and Kristine Kwekkeboom, PhD, RN. 
 
Visovsky, whose contributions to nursing have been focused on chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy—an important, dose-limiting toxicity of cancer chemotherapy affecting sensory, motor and autonomic nerves—says she feels honored. “Selection as a fellow in AAN is a great honor for me,” Visovsky said. “As such, I hope to continue my mentorship of junior nurse scientists, practitioners, and students in making life better for our patients with cancer.”
 
All of the new AAN fellows are doing tremendous work in increasing the level of nursing care for patients with cancer across the country. The 12 ONS members selected as fellows demonstrate the key vision of ONS of leading the transformation of cancer care through their innovation, excellence, and advocacy for patients.
