Every certified orthopaedic nurse now has a FREE account automatically established on LearningBuilder, ONCB’s online certification maintenance system. The account is linked to a certificant’s specific credential and certification expiration date. Certificants can even upload certificates as they earn them to maintain a complete record for recertification and make the audit process easier. Access the program through the LearningBuilder link or put this web address in your Favorites (https://oncb.learningbuilder.com).
For Certificants Who Have Never Used LearningBuilder
Activate your account and complete your profile by going to the LearningBuilder home page and select “Request a password by clicking here” (under New Users on the left side of the screen). You will be prompted to enter in the email address you used when sitting for the exam. You’ll receive an email outlining your next step and you’ll be on your way to recertification.
Current LearningBuilder Users
Please continue to take advantage of this service and access your account as usual.
To be sure we have your current mailing and email addresses, you also will be asked to verify this information in your profile before you submit your application at the end of your 5-year certification term.
Certificants must complete the “My Learning Opportunities” sections at the top of the recertification application. This form is designed solely to encourage certificants to anticipate their educational needs. It reflects the certificants’ need for continuing competence. It is not a punitive measure, as no action will be taken if a certificant is unable to attend or locate education on the desired topic.
LearningBuilder Help Videos
New to LearningBuilder? ONCB has created short video tutorials that provide an introduction to the online recertification tool and “how-to’s” for completing the application. Two videos reviewing recertification requirements are also available.
|This process of re-certifying online worked very well for me! It is very well organized and worked very smoothly. I very much appreciated the very quick response I received about CEs in question and the resolution process was also very fast! Thank you for a great experience!

|This is the first time I have used this system for recertification. It is very slick! Very organized and easy to use. Excellent resources and video tutorials! Thanks so much for making this process soooo less cumbersome! You need a “Best Process” award!
|For those contemplating paper or electronic submission of the required CEU’s for recertification, the Learning Builder facilitated the recertification process and was very user friendly. Once I figured out how to upload my certificates, I was on a roll to finish and submit. Watching the videos beforehand provided detailed step-by-step guidelines which was extremely helpful.
