The NCIN grant included provisions to increase community awareness of the nursing profession and of the contributions that nurses make in the community. NCIN scholars achieved that by providing blood pressure monitoring and weight checks at a local wellness fair; participating in environmental projects, including an effort to clean up Hackensack River on Earth Day; volunteering at a “Relay for Life” sponsored by the American Cancer Society and a five-kilometer race organized by a local chapter of the American Red Cross; collecting holiday gifts from retail store owners to support a “Shelter Our Sisters” initiative for domestic violence survivors; and helping rebuild Bergen County through a Habitat for Humanity project in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
 

SUCCESS STORIES
