Leadership has been a primary focus of the NCIN program at the University of Delaware, where NCIN scholars had opportunities to serve as research or teaching assistants with faculty mentors. Mentors also helped scholars develop leadership goals and competencies. NCIN scholars consistently spoke at open houses for the accelerated nursing program which was a step forward as students from underrepresented groups had rarely helped recruit new students in the past. The NCIN scholarships positioned the university to receive a Health Resources and Services Administration diversity grant in 2014; it will be used to continue the work begun under the NCIN grant.
