Thank you for making ONS history by participating in our first virtual conference. Here’s what you need to know to get the most out of ONS Bridge™.

Each morning we will provide a daily run-down via email, which includes an at-a-glance schedule and information about the activities available for each day of the live conference. Explore all that ONS Bridge has to offer here.

Session Highlights

Check Out the On-Demand Library

View oral abstract presentations and posters in the on-demand library. Be sure to keep track of all oral abstracts and posters you view because attendees can earn 1.0 NCPD contact hour for every four oral abstracts viewed and 1.0 NCPD contact hour for every 20 posters viewed.  

If you are unable to attend the live sessions, you can always visit the on-demand library to better fit your scheduling needs. The on-demand library is available through October 17, 2020. The on-demand content offers all sessions featured on the live event dates in addition to the virtual learning hall, sponsored symposia and product theaters, and e-poster and oral abstract presentations. Live sessions will be posted in the on-demand library about 48 hours after their original run time.

Don’t Forget About Your Evaluation

Evaluations are due by 11:59 pm EST on October 30, 2020. Visit the help center for detailed instructions on how to fill out your evaluation.

ONS is so thankful to have the opportunity to connect with oncology nurses virtually during ONS Bridge and provide the opportunity for nurses to earn up to 98.5 NCPD contact hours. We truly missed seeing you in person this year, but are so happy to be able to continue to offer the education you have come to expect from ONS.
