Renewal Options for 2015
The deadline date to apply for certification renewal in 2015 has passed. If your certification expires in 2015, you may apply for Reinstatement.
Reinstatement allows you to earn points for renewal through December 31, 2015, and to apply for reinstatement through March 31, 2016. There is a reinstatement fee, in addition to the applicable renewal fee.
Nurses who wish to reinstate must submit the Reinstatement application form, ONC-PRO Logs, and all point documentation (e.g., CE certificates, letters of attendance) for points submitted by March 31, 2016.
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.
