September 8 is Paediatric Oncology Nurses Day and September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month!

Established in 2010 by the Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses (APHON), Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses’ Day is celebrated each year on September 8. We salute all pediatric hematology/oncology nurses on this day for their life-long commitment to children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer or blood disorders and their families.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and what a fine complement to that month, should we establish a day recognizing those nurses who care for the day-to-day needs of children with cancer and blood disorders, guiding families through the most difficult circumstances anyone can experience.

Join us in acknowledging nurses around the world who care for children and adolescents with cancer.

We are pleased to present our 2022 Paediatric Oncology Nurses Day celebration posters for download in various languages:

We hope you will support the wonderful work done by paediatric oncology nurses around the world and hang up one of these posters in your unit/hospital/organization.

Thanks for your help in honoring these dedicated professionals!


With our thanks and good wishes,
