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 will fund the planning phase of the replication of Project L.I.N.C. in the State of Georgia. Initial focus will be directed towards career advancement of LPNs to RNs. In addition, the grantee will focus on retaining the minority and low-income health workers through this program. Surveys will be conducted to determine: (1) nursing school participation; (2) pool of applicants; (3) need for faculty/use of preceptors and adjunct faculty; and (4) availability of resources to support distance learning. The grantee will also identify additional funding sources. The Georgia Health Association Research Education Foundation will utilize an audio conferencing system (TELNET), which connects hospitals throughout the State for educational and management purposes, to convene groups involved in the planning phase of this project.
