National Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses Day is observed annually on September 8th.

Coinciding with Childhood Cancer Awareness month, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses Day honors those nurses who are dedicated to providing quality nursing care for children, adolescents and young adults with cancer and blood disorders. Additionally, they provide the highest standard of physical and emotional support to these most precious patients and their families.


Recognize pediatric hematology/oncology nurses you know and support them as they strive to make every child’s healthier and cancer free. Use #PediatricHematology/OncologyNursesDay to post on social media.


The Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses (APHON) is credited with founding this National Day.
