The NCIN program helped increase the diversity of the student body. Nearly 40 percent of ABSN students are from backgrounds underrepresented in nursing, thanks in large part to NCIN-led efforts to recruit minority and low-income students.

 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.
