The SIOP Nursing Lifetime Achievement Award has been renamed the SIOP Nursing Leadership Award.
Given that pediatric oncology is recognized as a nursing subspecialty only recently in many countries, this change will expand the opportunity to recognize and celebrate pediatric oncology nurse leaders from across the globe.
The criteria for this award remains the same.
The SIOP Nursing Leadership Award is bestowed upon any present or past member of the Society for his/her leadership impact on pediatric oncology nursing. The awardee will have:
- Significantly contributed to the goals of SIOP Nursing
- Been active in the SIOP Nursing Network
- Made a substantial scientific, clinical and/or educational contribution in pediatric oncology nursing
The deadline for nominations has again been extended to Wednesday, April 14th. Please consider nominating a colleague who meets the criteria for this prestigious award.
