Review Courses

ONCC offers information about certification review courses and other continuing education opportunities as a service to certification candidates. ONCC does not provide review courses.

If you are planning to use a course for 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.

ONS offers online review courses for OCN®, AOCNP®, and AOCNS® certification, including a series of courses that can be taken individually or as a bundle. Visit the ONS website for course information or contact ONS Customer Service at 866-257-4ONS.
