From 1993 through 1997, Maryland Project L.I.N.C. (previously, Project L.I.N.C.) enrolled 75 students in the program. More than 50 percent of these participants were minorities.
Project L.I.N.C. was a national career advancement program that provided financial resources and support services to qualified low income and minority, entry- and mid-level hospital and nursing home employees to help them advance into licensed practical nurse (L.P.N.) and registered nurse (R.N.) positions.
The project was part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Ladders in Nursing Careers Program national program.
