BONENT adheres to the premise that certification not only promotes excellence in the quality of care of the nephrology patient, it ensures safe, competent practitioners in nephrology nursing and technology.
Initial certification is the result of having successfully passed the BONENT certification examination.
How Often Must You Renew?
Recertification is required every four years. Documentation is due within 30 days of your certification expiration date.
Faxed Recertification Applications or booklets will NOT be accepted.
It takes 4 weeks to process a recertification application after it is received. After approval, you will receive a new BONENT wallet card in the mail.
A 30-day grace period will be allowed after the certification renewal date expires before the candidate’s certification is considered lapsed. Lapsed candidates have two options:
- Retake the examination, or
- Complete the reinstatement process
