What Is AONN+ Certification?
AONN+ has established its Oncology Nurse Navigator–Certified Generalist (ONN-CG) and Oncology Patient Navigator–Certified Generalist (OPN-CG) certifications for professionals in these respective professional fields. AONN+ created these certifications in response to the desires of our membership, and the educational criteria and curriculum were developed by the AONN+ Certification Task Force made up of experienced leaders within both navigator fields.
The certification exams are currently given twice a year: in the spring at the regional meeting and in the fall at the annual conference. The 2017 West Coast Regional Meeting is going to be held in Phoenix on April 27-29, and the AONN+ Annual Conference is going to be held in Orlando on November 16-19.
