 The NCIN scholars brought rich cultural, racial, and ethnic diversity, as well as academic excellence, to the Alternate Entry Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program, deepening other students’ cultural knowledge. They received mentoring from peers and faculty and heard from community, state, and national leaders who
shared career experiences and strategies for success. The scholars also participated in campus and community service activities, which were integral to the program’s success. NCIN scholars excelled academically and all graduated with their MSNs. Today they are active members of professional nursing organizations and engaged educators, managers, and advanced practice nurses.
