What students are saying about the nursing program
  • The standards are very high, and you will be expected to give 100% every day, but it is worth it in the end.
     
  • There is a reason for everything in the OCNE curriculum. Don’t resist it, embrace it and you will succeed!
     
  • The best addition made to our library this past year was Medcom videos. They have up-to-date, evidence-based nursing information and are easily accessible from home computers. One of our nursing instructors offered assistance with resume and cover letter writing. Very helpful.
     
  • The faculty works so hard to deliver relevant, up to date material. They are receptive to feedback and actively strive to better our learning environment. I feel very satisfied with the nursing faculty.
     
  • Because all of our nursing instructors have years of experience in the clinical setting, they were able to relate the content to the real world very effectively. Each instructor has practiced in different areas of expertise so they were able to share real life examples with us which made the content easier to assimilate.
     
  • The simulations were great because we could work through scenarios and discuss various ways of dealing with uncomfortable situations. It would be great if there could be more of them. The schizophrenic exercise was exceptionally useful too - seeing what it felt like to be hearing voices - gave me a lot better understanding of those patients (of which I've had a few).
     
  • Simulation is irreplaceable. I think the Sim lab was a very good environment to practice skills and difficult conversations with patients. I learned a lot about how to manage difficult family members, psychotic patients and out of the norm clinical presentations. A very good environment to practice without fear of hurting the patient. I feel well prepared to enter the nursing field.
     
  • I was amazed at the level of professionalism displayed by the staff and the willingness to listen to student concerns and act on them. Several times I was aware of policy changes made because a student brought concerns to the department. I also think the nursing staff did a good job of coordinating our content with clinical experiences. The concept-based days were very helpful to bring together concepts and actual patient clinical presentations. Working with an instructor to interpret labs, diagnostics, assessments etc. and relate them to a clinical picture will help me to be a better nurse with better clinical judgment.
