 Partly due to the NCIN grants, the school of nursing developed a Second Career Alumni Mentoring Program. Staff knew that mentoring relationships were vital to accelerated second-career nursing programs, given the intensity and speed with which students complete their studies. The mentoring program includes both personal and professional support for students, with a focus on academic achievement, career planning and development, and networking with health care systems and practicing nurses. School of Nursing alumni have been enthusiastic mentors and have demonstrated clinical and professional leadership and a range of specialties, so scholars could be matched based on their interests and the attributes they were seeking in a mentor.
