New Careers in Nursing Institutional Data Set
This data set includes over 3,500 records of the scholar participants in the NCIN program. The file has been cleansed of personal information to maintain the privacy of the scholars. It includes key demographic information and responses to three program surveys given at the beginning, middle and six months following completion of the accelerated nursing program. The survey questions tracked responses to pre-entry program support, confidence in nursing skill acquisition, mentoring experiences, leadership and careers aspirations. It also includes experiences with the culture and climate of the nursing program, educational indebtedness, NCLEX passage and first position attained after program completion. If you are interested in accessing this data please contact Christine Downing at cdowning@aacnnursing.org.

New Careers in Nursing Scholar Data Set
This data set is best suited for analysis of the individuals who participated and completed the NCIN sponsored programs. While institutions have been masked to protect individuals, the data can be aggregated to the regional level to give an approximation of the recruitment type of aspiring and successful applicants to nursing programs. It also can answer questions about program supports that enhance and promote accelerated degree completion. If you are interested in accessing this data please contact Christine Downing at cdowning@aacnnursing.org.
