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 provides funding to the Maryland Hospital Association (MHA) for a planning phase in replicating Project L.I.N.C. During this phase, the Association will: (1) develop criteria for selecting regional or statewide implementation; (2) secure commitment of key parties; (3) establish an administrative office; (4) prepare participating facilities for implementation; and (5) develop an implementation proposal. A Steering Committee will be formed to oversee this phase and emphasis will be placed on including minority representatives. Additional funding sources will be identified for the implementation phase. The MHA will also target allied health professions such as those working in respiratory care, radiography, and physical therapy, to participate in the project.
