Event Details

Dear Conference Participants:



In light of the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the rapidly changing circumstances, the Rhode Island & Southeastern Massachusetts Chapter of the Oncology Nursing Society has decided to postpone the 34th Annual Spring Conference scheduled for March 21, 2020. We have made this decision in accordance with the State of Emergency issued by the State of Rhode Island and as recommended by academia and health care systems to limit the assembly of large groups of heath care professionals. The health and safety of you and your patients is our primary concern.



The Conference Planning Committee has worked diligently to secure a new date at the Crown Plaza. Please save September 19, 2020 to attend our conference including the same speakers and a host of exhibitors.



Your registration fee will be kept on deposit for this conference. However, if you would like a refund, please send an email to:
 with “Refund” in the subject line.




Updates will be posted on the Chapter Virtual Community, Facebook page and Eventbrite.




Thank you for your understanding and support.
