From an impromptu meeting of four pediatric oncology nurses in 1973, APON (later APHON) was formed. During the past 40+ years, the organization has grown to encompass more than 3,600 members in the United States, Canada, and around the world.
APHON was born out of need. In the early 1970s, there was a need to share practice problems and successes, and knowledge about the pediatric nurse's unique role. There was also a need to create a professional community, one built on mutual support that would foster the intellectual and professional growth and development of pediatric oncology nurses across the country.
APON to APHON
To acknowledge that most members care for hematology as well as oncology patients, the membership voted to become APHON (Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses) in 2006. The scope of care definition was expanded to include adolescents and young adults.
In 2006, APHON partnered with NSNA (National Student Nurses Association) and welcomed its first NSNA member in 2007.
