Verify Certification


As a member of the American Board of Nursing Specialties, ONCB believes the major goal of specialty nursing certification is to improve patient outcomes and promote the safety of health care consumers. Consumers and employers need to be able to determine the certification status of orthopaedic registered nurses.  With transparency and consumer safety the concerns, ONCB now offers online verification of certification for its three credentials: ONC®, OCNS-C®, and ONP-C®. Please follow the instructions below to verify the following information about orthopaedic-certified nurses:

Name and credential
Original date of certification
Expiration date of certification term
Certificant ID number (an internal identifier)

Go to http://oncbcert.goamp.com and select “Members” from the upper left corner of the page. Do not attempt to use the “Log In” pathway.  You can locate a certificant either through the “Directory” or the “Search” function.  Using the “Search” function, you can enter the certificant’s name and location (if a common name). When you select a letter of the alphabet from the “Directory,” you will be taken to a full list of all certificants whose last names begin with the chosen letter.  By selecting the individual certificant’s name from the list, you will be taken to a screen with the above information for verification purposes.

There is no charge for this service.  ONCB will no longer provide faxed or emailed certification verification.
