  2. To motivate students' involvement in opportunities presented through the Indiana University Graduate School, Indiana University School of Nursing, and Indiana University support services.
  3. To promote communication between students, administrators, professors, mentors, staff, and the community.
  4. To promote experiences that will support the accomplishment of a student's professional goals.
  5. To meet regularly with students to review progress and to make plans for future success.
The benefits of the program for participating students are:
  1. Opportunities to learn more about the Indiana University School of Nursing and Indiana University itself.
  2. Expert assistance in developing career goals in advanced practice nursing.
  3. Expert guidance in making career decisions.
