Oncology Nurses Association of India

The primary objective behind this initiative is to unite all nurses involved in oncology care and create a platform for continuous learning and development in the field of Oncology Nursing.

The first release of quarterly newsletter “Oncology Nursing News Letter” was done by the then Executive Secretary of Oncology Nursing society (ONS) Ms. Pearl Moore.
