Resources for SGNO members include continuing education and professional development programming. The SGNO education committee addresses patient education needs and is working on developing CEU programs for our members. The committee also is responsible for elements of the Annual Symposium. The focus of these presentations is usually basic and is directed to newer gynecologic oncology nurses.
