APHON offers a variety of educational programs, conferences, webinars and courses to help you keep pace with advancements in pediatric hematology/oncology nursing. Members receive discounted prices on registration fees for all educational events.
The Annual Conference and Exhibit is the premier educational experience for nurses who specialize in pediatric hematology/oncology nursing and your opportunity to gain valuable knowledge from experts in the field, examine current and future trends, network with nurses who experience the same daily challenges, and earn continuing nursing education credit for advanced practice nurses. The annual conference is held in the fall annually.
Self-Care and Resiliency Building Workshop
You’re busy taking care of your patients and families. How do you take care of yourself? This workshop provides pediatric hematology/oncology nurses the opportunity to explore resiliency and self-care through self-assessments, individualized self-care planning and participation in a variety of experiential learning opportunities that strengthen resiliency by guarding against compassion fatigue, moral distress, vicarious trauma and burnout.
Local Chapter Events
APHON’s local chapters offer ongoing educational and networking opportunities throughout the year. Additionally, many local chapters participate in various community activities throughout the year to promote APHON’s purpose and vision.
Pediatric Chemotherapy/Biotherapy Provider Courses
The APHON Chemotherapy/Biotherapy Provider Course is the only course of its kind and is now a criteria of the U.S News and World Report Best Children's Hospital. This program is designed to provide nurses with information about how to safely administer chemotherapy and biotherapy to children and adolescents with cancer. APHON has more than 500 instructors that teach the course throughout the year.
APHON posts information about upcoming pediatric hematology/oncology nursing related events when notified of them by the sponsoring organization.
APHON recognizes that not all nurses can spend time away from their work and families to attend the Annual Educational Conference and therefore has developed webinars to serve this population. APHON webinars focus on single topic areas that have been identified by members as needing further study.
