As part of the Oregon Consortium of Nursing Education (OCNE), OHSU periodically requires data about their nursing students who are taking their coursework at SOU. Whenever OHSU requires a file, SOU must create it from Banner and then send it to them via the Oregon Financial Aid Exchange (OFAX) server. The process consists of 3 steps:

  1. Create the data file
  2. Send the data file to your computer.
  3. Send the data file to OFAX

NOTE: OHSU Nursing students are identified by a student attribute of "OCNE" in Banner. It is important that an attribute is entered when an OHSU student starts at SOU and ended when the student is no longer participating in the OHSU program.
