    I'm planning to take the certification in April-where would I get the core curriculum book you mentioned? I can use and help I can get! Thanks!
    www.amazon.com have it
    you can look at it online

    find out any institution around your area that offers ONS review classes...if not
    ONS have review classes every fall and spring during congress
    this fall its in Chicago...and spring next year is in Philadelphia...you can also attend the congress while youre there...I took my review class during last year's fall congress in Pittsburg...

    Thanks for the word of confidence! I did take the review class last spring but it was so long ago I hope it still helps. I feel like I know the material but some of the questions on the practice test come up and I just shake my head. And some I get wrong for stupid reasons.
    One o'clock tomorrow so I will get studying again. Thanks again Plum94

    Well I PASSED!!!! I am so happy. It was really hard. I thought there was alot about radiation and I dont work in that area. I was worried. It is so nice that you get to know if you pass right away. When I took my hospice certification I had to wait 6 weeks. For all you going to take it I say study,study, study.:spin:

    Congrats to all! I passed mine just before the summer and was relieved. My suggestion is to read through the core curriculum, but to really focus on the study guide and just do every single question and then go back over the ones you miss in the core curriculum. Good luck!
