NCIN’s toolkits were invaluable resources that guided not only the development, but also management and evaluation, of Creighton’s mentoring and leadership programs.
Round 4: 2011-2012
Round 5: 2012-2013
Round 6: 2013-2014
NCIN program leaders report that scholars gained confidence as their accelerated nursing program progressed, thanks to leadership and mentoring activities that provided academic and personal support and helped them meet the challenges associated with a rigorous accelerated program. Former scholars served as mentors, sharing wisdom and insights. One NCIN scholar led efforts to plan and implement the first NCIN Stu- dent Leadership Conference, and went on to participate in NCIN’s Doctoral Advancement in Nursing (DAN) Project, which provides mentors and other supports to help nurses continue their education. Other Creighton NCIN scholars have enrolled in graduate programs, assumed nursing leadership positions, and/or served on hospital committees.
