 Since the NCIN program started, students in the Accelerated Program for Non-Nurses have developed and participated in many projects targeting low-income and disenfranchised people. This has deepened students’ understanding of health care and the factors that influence it.

 Since receiving its first NCIN grant, the school of nursing has more than doubled the number of faculty members from groups underrepresented in nursing and doubled the number of male faculty. It has also hired seven NCIN program graduates as faculty, and several of them mentor new NCIN scholars. School leaders also meet monthly with scholars to help them succeed academically and prepare them to become leaders.


I believe this about nursing… “Nursing is a very important profession that makes a large impact on the patient’s hospital experience.”

I believe this about nursing… “Nursing is not only a helping profession but also a giving profession.”   

I believe this about nursing… “Nursing is an honorable career where selfless people spend every day helping others in need.”

I believe this about nursing… “Nursing allows me to express myself.”

I believe this about nursing … “Nursing is a caring and compassionate profession that also requires competence and leadership.”

I believe this about nursing... "Nursing provides a way for me to combine my love for helping others with my passion for the human body."
