The purpose of the Oncology Nurse Navigator–Certified Generalist (ONN-CG) and the Oncology Patient Navigator–Certified Generalist (OPN-CG) certifications is to ensure that clinical nurse and patient navigators have the knowledge to competently demonstrate effective navigation services across the cancer care continuum within their scope of practice.
The AONN+ Foundation for Learning Certification Exams are administered twice a year at our Midyear* and Annual meetings.**
Make the most of your conference attendance by taking the exam to earn your navigator certification.
