The NCIN leadership team at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville incorporated many of the tools from the NCIN program into the entire accelerated BSN (ABSN) program, so that all ABSN students could benefit from the NCIN resources. The school used the Learner Centered Mentoring Model and mentoring exercises extensively. NCIN alumni and scholars from previous rounds were also matched with new scholars and served as their mentors.
