 After completing the two-day Pre-Entry Immersion Program, the five NCIN scholars in the 2010 cohort at the University of Missouri-Saint Louis participated in an orientation program for all accelerated nursing students. The NCIN program liaison and the retention coordinator served as their faculty mentors, and were available to help scholars when they encountered academic challenges or needed guidance in areas such as time management, study habits, test-preparation and test-taking, dosage calculations, and more.
