How to execute and see results of Oracle Stored Procedure from VB.NET

I created a simple SP in oracle like this:
 create or replace procedure TEST_VM(prm_1 IN varchar2,prm_2 IN varchar2,sp_cursor OUT sys_refcursor
)
 is
 begin
 open sp_cursor for select * from nm_Test where ptcpt_cd = prm_1 and ptcpt_nme = prm_2;
 end;
 /

It created and I can run in sql*plus perfectly and I have this code in VB.NET and I'm not able to run the procedure
myCMD.CommandText = "TEST_VJ"
        myCMD.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure
 
myCMD.Parameters.Add(New OracleParameter("prm_1", OracleType.VarChar)).Value = "'PARENT'"
        myCMD.Parameters.Add(New OracleParameter("prm_2", OracleType.VarChar)).Value = "'PARENT'"
        myCMD.Parameters.Add(New OracleParameter("sys_refcursor", OracleType.Cursor)).Direction = ParameterDirection.Output

myCMD.ExecuteNonQuery()

What is wrong am I doing

Since I don't have many points that I'm giving only 30 points right now.
Thanks

does it run if you comment out this line?
 
myCMD.Parameters.Add(New OracleParameter("sys_refcursor", OracleType.Cursor)).Direction = ParameterDirection.Output

You should not have to pass in a return value as far as I know...

Try changing it to

myCMD.Parameters.Add(New OracleParameter("@prm_1", OracleType.VarChar)).Value = "'PARENT'"
myCMD.Parameters.Add(New OracleParameter("@prm_2", OracleType.VarChar)).Value = "'PARENT'"
        myCMD.Parameters.Add(New OracleParameter("@sys_refcursor", OracleType.Cursor)).Direction = ParameterDirection.Output

I get this error if I use @:

ORA-01036: illegal variable name/number.

I don't know where excatly it is doing. Can you tell me based on my stored procedure where it is causing.

Thanks
