The Puerto Rico Nursing Career Cooperative Demonstration Project and Associate Nursing Program provided education and onsite occupational training laboratory to upgrade the education of 20 licensed practical nurses (LPNs) from 1989-90. The nurses were upgraded to associate nurses in an 18-month period at the Technological Institute of Puerto Rico. The program upgraded their education, developed professional competencies, acquainted participants with different aspects of associate nursing, and motivated continuing education. Resources and personnel of the institution achieved program objectives. The project consisted of 5 terms equivalent to 72 credits at undergraduate level for an associate nurse degree. (Courses within each of the five terms are listed in this final report along with evaluations and results. In addition, evaluation design, programmatic activities for fiscal year 1989-90, and a timeline for 1990-91 are included.)
