ONCC/ILNA Certification Information


ONCC/ILNA Certification Information

The program content has been reviewed by the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation (ONCC) and is acceptable for recertification points.*

Up to 6.6 CE may be applied to the following content areas:

  • Coordination of Care
  • Diagnosis and Staging
  • Scientific Basis for Practice
  • Symptom Management
  • Treatment

*Note that the course content applies to multiple subject areas across multiple credentials. The numerical value indicated above is the maximum amount of points that can be claimed in each subject area. The total amount of ILNA points claimed may not exceed the total amount of CNE awarded from this course and may only apply to the credential you are renewing. Please also note that nurses’ individual learning plans are linked to their credential’s test blueprint (content online). Current ONCC blueprints can be found on the ONCC website:

ONCC review is only for designating content to be used for ILNA points and is not for CNE accreditation. CNE programs must be formally approved for contact hours by an acceptable accreditor/approver of nursing CE to be used for recertification by ONCC. If the CNE provider fails to obtain formal approval to award contact hours by an acceptable accrediting/approval body, no information related to ONCC recertification or ILNA categories may be used in relation to the program.

Research To Practice is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
