As part of its NCIN program, the school of nursing provided the scholars with planned leadership opportunities related to practice, re- search and policy. They were exposed to national nurse leaders and opportunities to increase their knowledge and experience around health policy. Faculty were committed to preparing a diverse nursing workforce.
