ONCB Dottie Roberts Excellence in Certification Scholarship
Apply now for the Dottie Roberts Excellence in Certification Scholarship. In 2020, Dottie Roberts retired as Executive Director of ONCB. Dottie’s vast knowledge and dedicated service exemplify excellence in all facets of certification. Dottie held the orthopaedic certification credential since 1995, so the recipient of the scholarship is a nurse who must hold current ONC, ONP-C, or OCNS-C certification and must be recertifying for at least the second time. The recipient will receive a free recertification.
