The purpose of this award is to recognize a professional staff nurse for meritorious nursing practice by providing financial assistance to attend a continuing education program that will further the nurse’s professional goals.


This award honors a CTC-ONS member for excellence in nursing practice in the area of oncology. This award is open to a nurse in any type of setting/area, including patient care, education, research, administration, consulting or clinical practice.
