the nyc ceo is offering a ladder program for lpn and then a bsn!
"the nurse career ladder program will provide scholarships for income eligible new york city residents to attend nurse training programs leading to employment at an hhc facility."
"the nurse career ladder program offers two training opportunities at select facilities:"
"licensed practical nurse training lpn
