The Oncology Nursing Society Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Oncology Nursing Society, is a national, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to providing education to opportunities for oncology nurses around the world.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its annual Pat McCue/New Orleans Chapter End-of-Life Care Nursing Career Development Award. Through the program, a single grant of $2,000 will be awarded to support continuing educational activities for a registered nurse dedicated to caring for patients and their families during the final stages of life. (Note: The award cannot be used for tuition in an academic program.)
To be eligible, all applicants must be a registered nurse who spends a minimum of 75 percent of his/her time involved in end-of-life care and who has at least a year of experience in end-of-life care.
