Review Courses

ONCC offers information about certification review courses and other continuing education (CE) opportunities as a service to test candidates. If you sponsor a review course, send the details to oncc@oncc.org to be included on the list.  ONCC does not provide review courses.

If you plan to use a course to earn CE 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 CE. If you have questions about a specific review course, please contact the program organizer directly.


Attention Review Course Organizers:

Eligibility criteria for ONCC’s basic certification examinations changed in 2019. The new eligibility criteria require nurses to have more experience as a Registered Nurse (RN) and more hours of specialty practice before they can take a certification test. Learn more about the new criteria.
