 Arkansas State University was in the enviable position of being able to award all five of its NCIN scholarships to male students. The NCIN grant also made it possible for the University to hire a male clinical adjunct faculty member; since he also practices in a community setting, he was able to share his experiences as a male nurse providing care. The scholars demonstrated leadership by helping the class plan activities, including a pinning ceremony. They also were able to learn about health policy by attending the Arkansas Nurses Association Health Policy Luncheon and participating in conference calls with the Association’s Health Policy Committee.


I believe this about nursing… “It is the present and the future of our economy, our lives and our relationships.”
