ONC® Self-Assessment Examinations (SAEs)

Online self-assessment examinations (SAEs; sample test questions) are a great way to prepare for the ONC examination. Five modules are available, each with 50 questions: general exam content, metabolic and inflammatory diseases, peds/neuromuscular/congenital content, degenerative disease, and sports injuries/trauma. Each SAE is $35 and is available to you for a period of 30 days from the time the product is purchased. SAEs are offered only as a self-assessment and examination preparation aid; their completion is not required to be eligible to take the ONC examination,and does not guarantee successful performance on the examination. Questions on the SAEs do not appear on the examination. SAEs are only available through LXR and ONCB’s test vendor AMP.
PLEASE NOTE: You will be asked to pay for individual SAEs separately from examination fees or other ONCB products.


ONCB now offers bundled pricing for SAEs…five for only $125 (savings of $50)! This bundle of five SAEs is an especially great study aid for groups of nurses who are preparing together for the exam. Click here for the order form; completed form and fee should be sent directly to ONCB. Please note: bundled pricing is not available through online sales.
