Because orthopaedic-certified nurses value their hard-earned credentials, ONCB offers a retired designation to allow certificants to protect their credentials during life’s transitions.

The retired designation is available for nurses who are leaving the profession. If they decide to return to the workforce, they may reactivate their credentials by demonstrating completion of 15 contact hours of continuing education for each year of retirement preceding reactivation. As an alternative, nurses may retest in order to reactivate the credential.

The one-time fee for the retired designation is $50. Please review our website for more information:


New Platform for ONC® and ONP-C® Certification Applications

ONCB is moving its ONC® and ONP-C® initial certification applications to a new online platform, Learning Builder! This move will allow for an improved certificant experience by creating a seamless and quicker transition for new certificants to access their recertification learning plans. The launch is scheduled to take place in June. Stay tuned for more information from ONCB.
