National Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist Day takes place on 15th March.

It’s a day to celebrate and highlight everything that the cancer nursing workforce does for patients in the UK-wide health sector every day.

National Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist Day is a social media awareness day that has been developed to highlight and celebrate the hugely important role that the cancer nursing workforce provides in support of patients and UK-wide health systems daily.

The Cancer Nurse Specialist (CNSs) workforce is facing crisis. With the demand for cancer services increasing, more CNSs are needed now than ever before.

Holding events like National Cancer CNS Day on 15th March is an important marker to celebrate the incredible work they do and myth-bust preconceptions around working in cancer #NationalCancerCNSDay.
