With NCIN support, the Duquesne University School of Nursing offered leadership, development, and mentoring programs to scholars in the school’s accelerated second-degree nursing program. This support not only helped scholars succeed, but also helped administrators and faculty better understand students’ personal and professional needs.

Students welcomed the opportunity to be mentored and to mentor others and eagerly participated in the annual NCIN mentor event. Nursing school program staff noted that, over the five years of NCIN awards, the scholars enthusiastically shared their insights and expertise with each other.  


I believe this about nursing... "Nursing is spending time assessing the total needs of a patient to increase overall health."
I believe this about nursing… "Nursing is not only a career but a distinct way of improving people’s life by managing their health problems, maintaining health, and enhancing healthy state."
