For six consecutive years, Bellarmine University was the recipient of NCIN scholarships. They served as a catalyst for the creation of an Office of Graduate Admissions, relieving faculty of recruiting responsibility and allowing them more time to advise and mentor students. This new office also gave the nursing dean more time to work with local health care agencies and recruit faculty from diverse backgrounds. The university leveraged the growth in enrollment to support the addition of a building for nursing classrooms, labs, and offices; six additional full-time nursing faculties, including one who is doctorally prepared and African-American; additional student support services; and enhanced recruiting programs. The NCIN scholarships played an important role in the nursing department’s 118-percent growth in Accelerated Bachelor of Science in nursing enrollments.


I believe this about nursing.."Nursing is the intersection of humility, knowledge, and compassion."
