    Hello,

    I am new to ONS and looking forward to beginning a new chapter in my younger nursing career. I am currently in the middle of chemo treatments myself which has compelled me to join this community and become certified with infusions to help people with cancer the way that nurses are making a difference for me. I look forward to really empathize with my patients to make a difference. I am very excited to start this new niche of nursing. I truly believe everything happens for a reason.

    ​Welcome to you both!
    ONS is a terrific resource, even for an old Heme/Onc nurse like myself (33 years in the business)...there are so many new treatments and medicines coming out that we all need to learn.
    Also, I highly recommend attending an ONS Congress as a student/newer oncology nurse; it can be overwhelming at first but, with good time management, there is a lot to learn and do!

    Enjoy...it is a wonderfully rewarding career!
