Why honour a colleague?

Honouring fellow oncology nurses is an important part of recognizing and celebrating the hard work of oncology nurses across Canada.

Award nominees will be assessed by a panel of Canadian oncology nursing professionals and the recipient will receive $5,000 towards their further education and professional development. The recipient will be announced at the CANO/ACIO annual conference being held in Calgary, Alberta from October 20-23, 2016.

A previous winner once said: “To know that I’m appreciated is wonderful, but to know that I’m appreciated by colleagues I respect is gratifying beyond words.”
