Schoology Selected by Oncology Nursing Society

Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) has chosen the cloud-based, educational program from Schoology for its Learning Management System (LMS). This will allow the 35,000 members of the Oncology Nursing Society to access the latest research, continued educational courses and training for quality care for cancer patients. 

The Learning Management System has been chosen to better assist nurses, researchers, educators and other healthcare professionals in keeping up to date on the latest in cancer finds and care.

With new regulations on healthcare professionals, more than 20,000 of the current 35,000 members use the Learning Management System and actual classes to complete their continuing education credits. Oncology Nursing Society felt that the Learning Management System was the best solution to help its members become more efficient and stay current on the latest in technology, technique and patient care for those with cancer.

Schoology is a user-friendly program that will offer various programs allowing Oncology Nursing Society members to customize their experience and integrate it with existing systems. It is this that gained the program favor among ONS board members.  

Michele Galioto, RN, MSN and Oncology Nursing Society director of education, said she was “impressed” with the “flexibility and intuitiveness” of the platform,” as well as “its commitment to the user experience.”

She sees Schoology as the ideal fit. “Many of our members are full-time professionals who need quick and easy access to premium educational resources in an environment that meets their busy schedules, offering streamlined navigation and interactivity,” she said. “Schoology's depth of capabilities, ease-of-use, and platform scalability was a perfect fit for ONS."

Jeremy Friedman, CEO for Schoology, shares her enthusiasm, calling their work with ONS a “great example” of the platform’s “universal utility and appeal to educators, students [and] administrators,” and says he is proud to be working with ONS. 

Schoology can be found among 30,000 current schools and organizations with more than a two-million member enrollment.
