Do you need another chance?
Unfortunately, not everyone passes the ONC 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.
ONCB offers a $50 discount off the exam fee for every re-test opportunity you may need to succeed. On the bottom of your score report is a form inviting you to retest. We already have your registration information, so we just need confirmation that you want to test again. Send the completed form and the appropriate fee (with current NAON membership card, if applicable) to our test vendor, AMP. Please note that the discount is only available with use of this form; do not send an application from the Candidate Handbook or attempt to register online, as discounts are not available.
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 do their best to help you.
