Teaching Students


OCNE was developed between 2001-2006 with the first class of students admitted in fall, 2006. Since then, we have continued to develop and renew our collaboration and our curriculum, with a commitment to excellence in nursing education.

We have learned a great deal about:

  • Forming partnerships and true collaboration.
  • Designing a competency-based curriculum.
  • Best practices in teaching and learning.
  • Creating meaningful clinical learning experiences.

We are eager to share what we have learned and to work with colleagues in nurse education to address issues of educational capacity, curriculum reform and clinical education redesign.

OCNE leaders are available to provide a variety of services to help your group move forward in transformation of nursing education. If your group is interested in OCNE consultation, contact us.
