Hello everyone, Our NYPENN ONS Board consisting of Melanie Nittinger, Jennifer Chrysler and Laurie Warzyniak has decided to move forward with Chapter status. A new application will need to be completed and forwarded to ONS National. I will submit the application once I get some clarification on some items. Since we have 2 board positions open I need to contact ONS National to see if we need to hold another election or can we appoint people into the positions. I will keep you posted. Robin and Natalia are interested in serving on the NYPENN Board. Thank you! If anyone else is interested in serving on the NYPENN Board please let me know. Board meetings for 2018 will be June, August and November. They will be held after the dinner meetings. Please mark your calendars. ONS Congress Washington D.C. Who is taking advantage of the free transportation to ONS Congress this year? Please let me know ASAP so arrangements can be made. ONS Leadership Weekend Our Chapter needs to send 1-2 members who are interesting in serving on the NYPENN Board to ONS Leadership Workshop in Pittsburgh, PA. July 20-22, 2018. It is a great weekend of learning, professional networking, and fun! Please let me know if you are interested in going. It is free! ONS Membership Raffle The winner is……. Terri Schmieg!

We are working out the details. We will keep you posted. In the meantime, think about how you are going to celebrate at work. Here are a few ideas from ONS: Pin Your Oncology Nursing Month Poster to the Bulletin Board All ONS members will receive a poster with their April 2018 edition of the ONS Voice. A limited supply will also be available through ONS customer relations. Hang it with pride in your workplace where everyone can see it. Take Time to Celebrate You provide steadfast and selfless care for your patients. Take a moment to reflect and focus back on yourself and your colleagues. Here are some simple ways to show your pride for your profession and commend one another's daily efforts! • Buy flowers or cookies for the oncology nursing staff or colleagues. • Hold an Oncology Nurse Appreciation Day at your hospital. This can be done for the employees of your hospital or clinic as well as those from the area. Invite employees and the general public. • Order Oncology Nursing Month gifts. • Develop an Oncology Nursing Month display to acknowledge cancer nurses in your workplace. • Arrange a social gathering with your local ONS chapter and seek donations toward the event from your oncology department and/or hospital administration. • Plan an educational program in your community, such as a free cancer screening. • Hold a potluck dinner with your staff. • Speak to students about a career in oncology nursing. Remember, full-time students receive a free student membership with ONS!* Please let me know if you have any questions or ideas. I hope you have a great rest of the week. Melanie Nittinger NYPENN President
