 NCIN grants increased enrollment of students from backgrounds underrepresented in nursing, and pro- vided funds that were leveraged to facilitate and capitalize a Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Science and Health and to build an alliance for health sciences with the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. DePaul’s nursing school hired a 2008 NCIN scholar as an adjunct faculty member; three DePaul NCIN scholars are enrolled in the “Bridges to the Doctorate” program; and one was selected as an RWJF Future of Nursing scholar. NCIN scholars worked with DePaul’s Irwin W. Steans Center for Community-based Service Learning to develop and implement service projects, including health screenings for residents of Chicago’s underserved neighborhoods.


I believe this about nursing...“Nurses help save lives, make a true difference and inspire those around them.”
