Get to Know Your Fellow Oncology Nurses—a Great Bunch of People!
It takes a special kind of person to be an oncology nurse. It is one of the most challenging nursing specialties—but it’s also one of the most rewarding. At IOL, you can connect with other cancer nurses, learn about new products in the exhibit hall, check out the latest resources available through ONS and its affiliates, or go online and meet other attendees virtually.
Here are a couple suggestions to get the most out of your time at IOL:
- Pack business cards with you so that it’s easy to share your contact information with new friends and colleagues.
- Visit the ONS Information Station, located in the exhibit hall, to learn more about ONS special interest groups (SIGs)—communities of members with similar interests or working in common practice settings. ONS has more than 30 SIGs to choose from, and members can join for free!
- Make the most of social networking—from Facebook, to Twitter, and more, it’s a great way to connect to fellow attendees.
- Make plans with your fellow nurses to enjoy some of the many local activities.
