 NCIN scholars at the University of San Diego are leaders in student governance and on key committees, serving as elected officers of the Graduate Student Nurses Association and as student liaisons to school commit- tees. The University has leveraged the NCIN Program to help win grants from the California Office of State- wide Health Planning and Development, which allowed for additional community health practicum sites, more simulation case studies focused on diversity and a Spanish class requirement for the entire cohort of students. The entire graduate student body now benefits from NCIN pro- gram activities to our entire graduate student body, thus broadening the scope of impact of the program.
