Do you need another chance?
Unfortunately, not everyone passes the ONC or ONP-C exam on the first attempt. Sometimes, nurses may fail on a second or third attempt. Your friends at ONCB recognize the disappointment you experienced if you failed the exam…and we want to help.
For nurses not registered through “Retest for Success,” ONCB offers a $50 discount off the exam fee for every re-test opportunity you may need to succeed. The discount will be applied automatically when you log in to the online application portal Connect to reapply for the examination. You do not need to create a new application unless more than 366 days have passed since the original application was completed.
You must wait at least 90 days between one test day and the next. There is no exception to this requirement. However, we at ONCB encourage you to re-test at your first opportunity after meeting the 90-day requirement.
If you have questions about re-testing or studying for the exam, please do not hesitate to call the ONCB. Our staff will be glad to help you.
