Minnesota Project LINC (Ladders in Nursing Careers) is designed to meet statewide and community healthcare delivery needs by assisting healthcare employees to successfully complete their nursing education. In partnership with employers, this program removes many nontraditional student employee barriers to education (e.g., loss of income, educational expenses) and provides needed individual support services. As a result, employers are positioned proactively to address their community needs. Program planning, implementation, and an evaluation of Minnesota Project LINC (MN LINC) are discussed in this article.
