Partnering Research Involving Mentoring and Education in Prostate Cancer PRIME is a partnership between two nursing schools, Duke University School of Nursing and North Carolina Central University NCCU, an historically black college or university HBCU. Our goal is to build a collaborative relationship between Duke University and NCCU that brings together students and faculty mentors to facilitate opportunities for underrepresented minority students to learn about prostate cancer. To accomplish this goal, we are capitalizing on the strengths of both universities to conduct a didactic and hands-on training program to expose undergraduate students to prostate cancer prevention, detection, and control research. The objectives of the PRIME program are to provide undergraduate nursing students with mentored experiential learning to 1 understand the burden of prostate cancer, particularly among African Americans 2 develop a beginning level of competence in technology resources for information gathering and data management in prostate cancer research 3 obtain introductory knowledge about the research process 4 gain hands-on experience in community-based prostate cancer control activities and 5 experience role model development for research and healthcare practice careers, and begin to build networks with researchers and health professionals in a Research I environment.
