What is the Campus Immersion?


Online AGACNP students and those earning the dual certification will attend one clinical immersion on the Rockhurst campus in Kansas City, Missouri for three days each of clinical instruction in the new, state-of-the-art simulation lab and renovated nursing facilities. Students will also engage in one virtual immersion to further hone their skills.

Campus Immersion Activities

  • Receive hands-on skills training
  • Complete high-fidelity and low-fidelity simulations
  • Demonstrate competencies through an Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE)

After the Immersion

  • Following the campus immersions, students will return home and continue their online coursework. Additionally, they will complete the rest of their clinical hours at a predetermined site under the direct supervision of a licensed preceptor and the indirect supervision of a Rockhurst clinical faculty supervisor.
