Special Interest Group Sessions


Special interest group (SIG) sessions will require a separate evaluation.

There has been a change in the process by which SIGs can provide CNE for their Congress meetings. SIGs offering CNE sessions were required to apply the ONS Approver Unit, which changes how their evaluations are completed and CNE certificates are distributed.

Each SIG is now responsible for distributing and collecting the evaluation for their session and providing the CNE certificates to attendees. Specific instructions will be available at each SIG meeting to explain requirements for CNE, as they may vary.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
