Cancer Nursing Today Announces Its Inaugural CARE Award

Cancer Nursing Today, a Mashup Media, LLC property, is pleased to announce the inaugural Cancer Nursing Today CARE Award, a recognition created to thank and give back to the oncology nurses who provide such important cancer care across the continuum.

Cancer Nursing Today knows that patients rely on their oncology nurses and understands the leadership role nurses have on multidisciplinary teams. Cancer Nursing Today is also aware of the implications of “The Great Resignation” of 2021, wherein 1 in 4 health care workers resigned. The nature of cancer care and the extreme demands of the job had already caused many oncology nurses to experience burnout, and combined with the impact of The Great Resignation, the loss of nursing staff was and continues to be tremendous.

“It takes a village to fight cancer. For me, it has been a privilege to be an oncology nurse and to celebrate the recognition of my peers through this new Cancer Nursing Today CARE Award,” said oncology nurse and Cancer Nursing Today contributor Elaine S. DeMeyer, RN, MSN, AOCN®, BMTCN®, owner of beyond Oncology Education, LLC.

Cancer Nursing Today established the CARE Award to remind and affirm for these nurses that resilience and role modeling are not only necessary but essential to providing high-level patient care.

“It is important for us to recognize the essential work oncology nurses do and the significant contributions they make to patient care and the oncology community,” said JC Landry, CEO of Mashup Media. “The CARE Award is a way for us to show our support for these indispensable members of the health care team.”

The award recognizes an oncology nurse who demonstrates:

  • Commitment to professional growth
  • Attention and dedication to role modeling
  • Resilience in uncertain and strenuous times
  • Emotional intelligence in every situation

Nominees should demonstrate role modeling and/or advocacy within their community or organization related to clients, patients, colleagues, or the environment.

“This Cancer Nursing Today CARE Award is different from other oncology nursing awards, as the peer nomination process is simple; there’s no lengthy essay required. Nurses in all areas of practice along the cancer care continuum are eligible to win,” said DeMeyer.

The winner of the Cancer Nursing Today CARE Award will receive a prize (valued at $1,000) and be recognized by Cancer Nursing Today for their commitment to this incredibly important profession.
