Ladders in Nursing Careers (L.I.N.C.) Program

The Foundation's Ladders in Nursing Careers Program was designed to replicate Project L.I.N.C. which demonstrated an effective strategy to help interested and qualified hospital employees advance into LPN and RN positions at the nursing school of their choice.This grant to the Greater Cleveland Hospital Association is for the planning phase in replication of Project L.I.N.C. The grantee plans to target: (1) minority health care workers due to the fact that entry and mid-level workers are predominantly minority; and (2) allied health workers in a smaller focus. A steering committee will be convened to guide and assist the grantee in planning, networking, educating, and negotiating the replication of the project. Members of this group include representatives from hospital boards, unions, health training programs, and will include representation from the Nursing Education Mobility Action Group, organized for the purpose of creating a model on nursing education articulation. During the planning phase, the grantee will: (1) identify and secure program participants; (2) identify and secure additional funding sources; (3) develop a database and data collection strategies; and (4) prepare an implementation proposal.
