Recertifying your credential demonstrates your continued commitment to lifelong learning and a high level of knowledge that contributes to effective patient care and safety.
The need for certified nurses specifically trained in orthopaedics is growing as the general population ages and requires more health-care services.
Applications should be submitted as early as possible to avoid expiration of certification. Application processing requires 6-8 weeks. The candidate who prefers to receive the recertification by June 30 must have applications in the ONCB® national office by March 31. It is recommended all materials be mailed certified, with return receipt requested.
