NCIN scholars were recognized as student ambassadors on the
School of nursing campus and represented the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis School of Nursing (IUSON) at campus and community events. Scholars served as mentors for high school students in a special summer camp, “Breaking the Myths of Nursing,” which raised awareness about the profession. They spoke on panels, participated in simulations, and helped students with hands-on activities. IUSON leveraged its NCIN funding and was awarded a grant for accelerated students from the Helene Fuld Trust. Additionally, IUSON leveraged its NCIN funding by providing free tutoring for the scholars, funding for the scholars to attend a national nursing conference, and paid for the scholar’s membership to a national nursing organization.
