Certification Partnership with Orthopaedic Nurses Certification Board

NOVA and the Orthopaedic Nurses Certification Board has formed a partnership to offer NOVA members a discount on examination registration fees. The discount will be equal to the member rate for the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses – for registered nurses who provide evidence of current membership in NOVA (your NOVA membership card) at the time of exam application. The discounted fees will equal the current online application fees for the ONC (basic credential) and ONP-C (nurse practitioner credential) certification examinations.   

ONCB was established in 1986 to provide certifications that promote professional development and enhance the practice of orthopaedic nursing.

We encourage you to take advantage of this very special discount!  For the ONCB website and further details, please visit www.oncb.org. Please click here to see the new Candidate Handbook.
