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 provides planning-phase funding to the Texas Hospital Education and Research Foundation for replication of Project L.I.N.C. throughout the State of Texas. A consortium, with the Texas Hospital Association, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and the Texas Health Care Association as senior partners, will design the implementation of the project. Due to the large size of the State, it will be divided into 5 regions and a computer conferencing model will be designed for use by regional co-team leaders for project information exchange. In addition, the grantee will: (1) develop a short video to market the project to key decision makers and potential sources; (2) secure commitments from participants; and (3) identify other funding sources.
