NCIN launched the PIP On-Line Supplement in August 2012! Designed as an enhancement to our traditional Pre-Entry Immersion Program, PIP On-Line is intended to meet the needs of both our grantees and scholars, allowing both to engage in pre-entry activities before beginning an accelerated nursing program. In this first year, PIP On-Line will include learning modules consistent with the PIP Toolkit. These modules will be interactive and feature videos, PowerPoint presentations ,questionnaires and more.
New Careers in Nursing is launching a series of programmatic webinars this spring, exclusively for NCIN grantees! These interactive presentations will include discussions from noted experts and NCIN program liaisons, question and answer sessions, and call for attendee participation.
The Future of Nursing’s Susan Hassmiller was recently in Hawaii and took a trip to visit with the RWJF NCIN Scholars at the University of Hawaii and Manoa. While on campus she captured a few sentiments from some of the lucky scholars.
This year, a group of New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) scholars and alumni came together to develop a Scholars Network; a community where scholars can share information, collaborate and support each other while they are in school, and as they enter the nursing workforce after graduation.
Administered by AACN, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Program provides scholarships and support to help alleviate the nursing shortage and increase the diversity of nursing professionals. Through grants to schools of nursing, the program provides scholarships to college graduates without nursing degrees who are enrolled in accelerated baccalaureate and master’s nursing programs.
New Careers in Nursing’s (NCIN) Pre-Immersion Program (PIP) has been highly successful in helping students improve their time management, critical thinking, study and other skills crucial to completing an accelerated nursing degree.
To build on that success, NCIN is launching the PIP Online Supplement in August of this year!
