COVID-19 Update for ONCC Certification Candidates

ONCC’s testing partner, PSI, has most test sites open in the US and Canada. ONCC test candidates may schedule at any open center pending available test appointments. Please follow the appointment scheduling instructions in your Authorization to Test.

Test Center Safety

Social distancing will be in place at test centers to promote candidate safety. Numerous other health and safety measures are in place at every center to protect test takers. Please check PSI's COVID Update before leaving for the test center so you know what to expect.

Please keep in mind:

Test center openings will depend on conditions and government restrictions in the local area. 

The COVID-19 public health crisis may continue to impact test center availability in the coming months. ONCC and PSI will make every effort to communicate with you promptly. We appreciate your patience.

ONCC has resumed sending certificates and wallet cards to nurses who passed a test or renewed certification. However, we are doing so safely. That means fewer staff can work on these processes at the same time and the mailings may take slightly longer than usual. Nurses may use our online Credential Verification to provide proof of certification.
