Students are required to participate in three mandatory On-Campus Experience (OCE) workshops each academic year. Although originally designed as faculty-led training sessions requiring travel to the University, the OCE has undergone modifications over time is.

For most students, the three-times per year OCE will be offered virtually. Attendance in-person is required for BSN-DNP in August of their admission year, and for FNP students (both BSN-DNP and MSN-DNP without NP) at the conclusion of their advanced health assessment course and each of the primary care clinical courses.
