All incoming nursing students, not just NC I N scholars, now benefit from NCIN’s Pre-Entry Immersion Program (PIP). Evaluation of the PIP indicated that students wanted more time to review math concepts and test-taking strategies, and officials were able to meet their needs.

 Weekly “lunch and learn” meeting grew out of the NCIN mentoring program at Norfolk State University’s nursing school. These meetings brought together scholars and their faculty mentors for informal, weekly lunch gatherings to discuss school-related issues. The meetings were limited to 10 students to ensure everyone could participate and get their questions addressed. Topics included multiple course subject matter, test taking, coping with stress, and organization. These sessions inspired other faculty members to volunteer to hold weekly sessions for other students in the program.


I believe this about nursing… “My nursing school journey transformed, enlightened and inspired new colors in me.”

 I believe this about nursing... "I am going to be one."
