 The mentoring program at the school of nursing has helped NCIN scholars improve their academic performance. The NCIN program enhances the academic support services available to all scholars through the school’s Student Success Center (SSC); this, in turn, has helped students improve their academic performance, especially in challenging courses such as pathopharmacology and adult health. NCIN scholars also serve as peer mentors through theSSC, which monitors student progress, identifies those who are at risk, and develops needs-based interventions. Professional nursing leaders from the community, including clinical nurse leaders (CNLs), visit classes and participate in orientation programs to in- form students about the state of CNL leadership and practice in the area.


I believe this about nursing..."Nursing is life."
Now that I’ve realized the dream of becoming a nurse, I have learned more about my ability to love. 
 I believe this about nursing…”You may not make the most money or receive the highest recognition, but day in and day out you’ll be making the biggest difference in the lives of patients.”
