ONCC is hosting a CBCN® Item Writing Workshop, April 20-22, 2018, at the ONCC national office in Pittsburgh, PA. CBCN® certified nurses are invited to apply to participate. Approximately seven participants will be selected to attend the workshop.
Workshop participants will receive detailed instruction on how to write multiple choice test items and one-to-one mentoring from experienced item writers. Test item writing requires strong writing skills and a broad knowledge base. Previous experience in test item writing and test development is not required but may be helpful. Each participant will be required to complete virtual training before the in-person meeting in Pittsburgh.
In addition, participants’ travel, hotel, and meal expenses for the meeting will be paid by ONCC. Participation will NOT affect a nurse’s eligibility to renew current ONCC certification.
Participants are required to bring a laptop to use during the workshop. Internet service will be provided.
Applications are due January 31.
