Chapter Virtual Communities

Leadership resource:   Consider adding the ONS Chapter Virtual Communities website to your ‘Favorites’ site on your PC, iPad, or smart phone! This is the home page for ‘all-things’ chapters. Just about every chapter document, form, policy manual, guideline, staff contact information, you name it - is housed on this site. It’s your one-stop-shop for chapter operations and management resources!

ONS Leadership Competencies

The ONS Leadership Competencies were developed by a project team in 2012 to "reflect the specific needs of oncology nursing, the strategic goals and direction of ONS, and the future of leadership within cancer nursing practice".  They were developed to be used by nurses across practice settings and professions to increase and measure nurse leadership competency within any environment. These competencies provide a means for self-assessment and a foundation for future leadership education.

If you are considering a leadership opportunity within the chapter, ONS, or your work setting ... these competency statements can be a great guide for your leadership journey!
