NCIN not only helped the Edge- wood College School of Nursing boost enrollment of students from backgrounds underrepresented in nursing in its Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, it also enabled the school to expand the number of faculty positions. NCIN’s Pre-Entry Immersion Program (PIP) Toolkit was used to advise and mentor students, and the NCIN scholarship program helped improve its orientation, mentoring, and leadership support. As a result of success with the NCIN scholars, the school used the same resources for all its ABSN students. All students in the accelerated program now benefit from NCIN’s PIP and its mentoring and leadership programs. NCIN funds helped attract funding for renovation, which in turn allowed for growth in the nursing pro- gram, which will help address nursing shortages in Wisconsin.
