APHON is committed to be influential in decision-making affecting the care for children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer and other blood disorders. As a part of this commitment, we want to provide our members with knowledge and opportunities to learn how to participate in the creation of public policy and advocacy related to nursing, and in particular pediatric hematology/oncology nursing. In that spirit, we are pleased to announce the APHON NIWI Scholarship.
The Nurses in Washington Internship (NIWI) will be held March 12-14, 2017, and provides nurses with the opportunity to learn how to influence healthcare through legislative and regulatory processes.
Over two days, participants:
- learn from health policy experts and government officials
- network with other nurses
- visit members of Congress
Applications for APHON NIWI scholarships are now available. Two applicants will be awarded scholarships. To learn more and apply, go to the APHON website
. The deadline for applications is Jan. 9, 2017.
