Review Courses

ONCC offers information about certification review courses and other continuing education opportunities as a service to certification candidates. If you sponsor a review course, please send the details to oncc@oncc.org for inclusion on the list.  ONCC does not provide review courses.

If you are planning to use a course to earn continuing education contact hours required for initial certification, or for renewal of certification, be sure the contact hours have been provided or approved by an accredited provider of nursing continuing education. If you have questions about a specific review course, please contact the program organizer directly.


 

Attention Review Course Organizers:

There are new test content outlines for the 2018 OCN®, BMTCN® and CBCN® examinations. You may wish to review these outlines to ensure your review courses are current. Also, eligibility criteria for ONCC’s basic certification examinations is changing in 2019. Beginning in 2019, the eligibility criteria will require nurses to have more experience as a Registered Nurse (RN) and more hours of specialty practice before they can take a certification test. Learn more about the new criteria.
