OCN Item Writing Volunteer Application

ONCC is hosting an OCN® Item Writing Workshop, March 27-29, 2020, at the ONCC national office in Pittsburgh, PA. OCN® certified nurses are invited to apply. Approximately 24 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 are not required but may be helpful. Each participant will be required to attend virtual training prior to 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.

Applications are due November 25, 2019.
