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.The planning phase of the replication of Project L.I.N.C. will be coordinated by the Coalition on Nursing and the Minnesota Hospital Association under the Metropolitan Healthcare Council. The project will have both a rural and urban focus and will initially target hospital employees. The grantee will also work with the Health Partnership, a coalition of metro area public health agencies and schools, to increase the low number of minority workers in health care professions. A steering committee will be formed with additional representation from unions, community colleges, rural hospitals, minority communities, and nursing homes. During the grant period, the grantee will also identify participating schools, additional funding sources, determine enrollment criteria, and prepare an implementation proposal.
