You should always check out available information on the contest. The best shot of success comes from initially researching the prerequisites and then determining if you qualify. A good first step is to be aware of the particular aims of the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) Foundation and their reason for offering the AOCN of the Year Award. Once that is done, figure out if you have the possibility of actually getting the contest. After figuring out that you have a decent shot that you can be one of the winners of the AOCN of the Year Award, then it is useful to put forth the effort to apply.

An important part in the process of trying for the contest is filling out the application correctly. Applications can sometimes be lengthy and laborious, but you shouldn't underestimate how important it is that you fill out the application accurately and without omission. Pay careful attention so that you won't lose out because of carelessness.

After filing, it's important to know when the AOCN of the Year Award chooses a winner and actually dispenses the resources so that you can know if it is possible to rely on the contest to help meet any bills associated with your education and its personal usefulness, since there might be constraints in what can be paid with the AOCN of the Year Award. Recently it has become more burdensome to be able to take care of the expenses associated with school, and obtaining the AOCN of the Year Award is often invaluable. If you don't end up getting the AOCN of the Year Award, don't give up, search for additional contests and you may find success elsewhere.
