 A seven-time NCIN grantee, Georgia Regents University (GRU) College of Nursing will continue to apply lessons from the NCIN program well into the future. School leaders in- tend to build on targeted recruitment and marketing, strategic educational partnerships, and NCIN’s Pre-Entry Immersion Program to sustain the momentum. According to the GRU liaison, “These strategies will be hard- wired into the College’s programming for years to come.” Scholars will enjoy career-long benefits from the program, which included panels on student diversity, discussions with doctoral students, and workshops on developing professional portfolios.

I believe this about nursing…. “It provides the opportunity to provide kind and compassionate care to both patients and their families.”

I believe this about nursing... "Anyone with the passion, willingness, and stellar work ethic can be a nurse."
I believe this about nursing... "Nursing is caring for an individual not as your patient, but as your family."
