Fulfilling Your Certification Needs at ONS Congress™

March 17, 2021

Danielle Roman, ONCC Marketing Coordinator

Need points for your certification renewal? The sessions you attend at ONS Congress™ can help, whether you’re just starting to earn points or you’re almost ready to submit your points for certification renewal.

Where to begin? Start with your learning plan—the list of subjects in which you may earn points for certification renewal. Here’s where to find yours:

  • Results report: If you passed a certification test, your results report identifies the number of points you need for renewal and the subject areas.
  • Assessment results report: If you’ve taken your Individual Learning Needs Assessment (ILNA), your assessment results report shows the number of points you need for renewal and the subject areas.
  • Are you AOCN®-, AOCNS®-, or CPON®-certified? Although you weren’t required to take the assessment, your learning plan is where you’ll record your points for renewal.

Haven’t taken your assessment yet? Remember, you can’t earn points for renewal until you take your assessment. If you’re eligible to take the assessment, be sure you do it before ONS Congress starts so you can use the nursing continuing professional development you earn for your certification renewal.

There are so many great ONS Congress sessions to attend! Once you know the subject areas in which you need to earn points, you can find sessions using the schedule on the ONS Congress website and filter the sessions by ILNA categories. Have questions about your certification renewal? Ask us at ONCC Certification Central during the virtual ONS Congress!
