What Is National Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses Day?
On this special day, we pay tribute to the nurses who spend countless hours caring for pediatric hematology/oncology patients every day. These nurses’ dedication and care go above and beyond the call of duty. Celebrated during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, these nurses care for children, teenagers, and young adults suffering from cancer and blood disorders. A lifelong commitment to these patients, these pediatric hematology/oncology nurses undergo extensive training to provide the highest possible standards of care for their young patients. If you know a pediatric hematology or oncology nurse, try your best to make their day a special one with a small token of your appreciation.
