 During the course of the NCIN grants, faculty members at Pace learned to expect the NCIN scholars to be socialized into the profession quickly and to take on leadership roles inside and outside of the classroom. Over time, more faculty expressed interest in participating in the NCIN mentoring program. NCIN scholars learned the level of leadership that was expected from them and often rose to the occasion during their studies and after they graduated. Scholars reported that serving as team leaders for their EBP (evidence-based practice) projects taught them valuable lessons about accountability, time management, and group dynamics. The NCIN grant covered the cost of having each scholar group’s EBP poster profession- ally prepared and printed. The posters highlighted the scholars’ work and that of other accelerated nursing students.
