 NCIN scholars at the University of Miami school of nursing participate in a seven-week online NCIN Pre-Entry Immersion Program that helps them develop study and pro- gram survival skills through a Black- board Learning Management System. Each week, scholars participate in an online seminar during which the program director presents discussion questions for the scholars to explore during the week that follows, using Blackboard’s Discussion Board. The school holds a monthly Leadership Luncheon Series at which prominent nurse educators and other health care leaders discuss important issues in nursing and health care. Scholars are encouraged to follow up by networking with the speakers and also have an opportunity to shadow the leader for a day.
