Coppin State University
NCIN’s PIP continues to benefit students at Coppin, even after the NCIN grants ended.
Round 5: 2012-2013
Coppin has incorporated the NCIN Leadership Toolkit into its leadership development activities. Each scholar is encouraged to develop an individualized leadership plan and each is engaged in a leadership project. Several NCIN scholars served as members of the school of nursing’s standing committees. Students also worked with faculty members in the community. NCIN scholars and all nursing students attend a Pre-Entry Immersion Program (PIP) that offers an opportunity to discuss policies and procedures at the school of nursing. Students meet with leaders from the college of health professions and get expert support to strengthen their logic and test-taking skills. Faculty ad- visors and mentors attend the meeting, which takes place over two days. The goal is to help each student succeed in the accelerated nursing program.
