    Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators
    The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is the largest national specialty organization dedicated to improving patient care and quality of life by defining, enhancing, and promoting the role of oncology nurse and patient navigators. Our organization of over 8,900 members was founded in May 2009 to provide a network for all professionals involved and interested in patient navigation and survivorship care services to better manage the complexities of the cancer care treatment continuum for their patients. We view our organization as one consisting of “professional patient advocates” and, to that end, we support and serve our members.
    Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship
    The Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS) promotes reliance on evidence-based practices in navigating patients with cancer and their caregivers through diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. JONS also seeks to strengthen the role of nurse and patient navigators in cancer care by serving as a platform for these professionals to disseminate original research findings, exchange best practices, and find support for their growing community.

    The Oncology Nurse-APN/PA (TON) provides coverage of the wide spectrum of oncology-related events, trends, news, therapeutics, diagnostics, organizations, and legislation that directly affect hematology/oncology nurses and advanced practitioners involved in healthcare delivery and product utilization.

What Is a Nicho?

A nicho is a type of Central and South American folk art that evolved from the Roman Catholic tradition of painting patron saints on wood or tin. These small 3-dimensional boxes honor a central theme important to the artist. Nichos blend elements of popular culture, spirituality, and Roman Catholicism and are usually made with striking colors from craft supplies and household items.

“I constructed this nicho during my recurrence of breast cancer—which was more aggressive than the first time—with the guidance and support of my art therapist. Through Chemo Fog, I show that the natural world helps to bring clarity and hope.”
—Diane Genco
