Renewal Options for 2015
All ONCC certifications are valid for four years. Renewal candidates must have a current, active, unencumbered RN license. Three renewal options are available in 2015:
Option 1: Practice hours + Oncology Nursing Certification Points Renewal Option (ONC-PRO)
Option 2: Practice hours + successful testing
Option 3: ONC-PRO + successful testing
For nurses renewing by Option 1, remember these dates:
September 15, 2015 to save $100 (off the final deadline fee)
October 15, 2015 is the final deadline date to apply.
If you are renewing more than one credential at the same time, or if your employer is paying for the renewal of multiple candidates at the same time, you must download and return this Renewal Application Multiple Renewals form.
All other candidates must log into their profile page and renew online. When applying online, you must submit both your application and completed ONC-PRO logs.
ILNA - Renewal Process for 2016 and Beyond
The first time you renew after passing a certification test, you will use your test score to identify your learning plan. From then on, you will take the free, Individual Learning Needs Assessment (ILNA) early in your certification cycle. This will determine the exact number of professional development points and what subject areas you will need to renew your certification.
Download this brochure for additional details.
ONCC will use the ILNA method for certification renewal beginning in 2016. You will record your points for renewal on your Learning Plan, in a new system called LearningBuilder. You can log into LearningBuilder using your ONCC/ONS username and password.
