 Administrators at Northern Arizona University’s (NAU) school of nursing hoped the NCIN program would help the school maintain steady enrollment in its accelerated second-degree baccalaureate program and increase the diversity of applicants. Leaders at the school of nursing credit participation in the NCIN program with helping it reach those goals; the possibility of a scholarship helped increase the applicant pool and the accelerated-degree program reached capacity. The number of men in the program increased by 10 percent and students from minority and financially disadvantaged backgrounds remained steady at 23 percent. Males and students from backgrounds underrepresented in nursing share their perspectives and mentor other students in the program.


This I believe about nursing… “Nursing is a way that I can concretely serve others and make a difference”

I believe this about nursing…“Nursing is strong and powerful foundation upon which the medical system stands.”

I believe this about nursing…..“Nursing is for helping those in need.”
