NRC Background

Increasing Regional Nursing Capacity.

The Nursing Resource Center features the Centrallized Clinical Placement System (CCPS) and Centralized Faculty Resource Center (CFRC). CCPS is used to schedule clinical placements and find new availabilites within specific regions. CFRC is a hub where nursing faculty and nurses interested in becoming faculty can post free profiles and find professional development resources. Learn more about these services >

Our Partners

Nursing Resource Centers are developed, hosted, and fully supported by the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the official nonprofit supporting the California Community Colleges, which educate the majority (70%) of California's new registered nurses each year. The Centralized Clinical Placement System and Centralized Faculty Resource Center were designed by the Foundation in partnership with HealthImpact, funded through a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation

The Moore Foundation's Betty Irene Moore Nursing Initiative aims to improve the quality of nursing-related patient outcomes in acute care hospitals in five Bay Area counties: Alameda, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara.

A statewide nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, HealthImpact is developing solutions to California's nurse shortage by partnering with nursing associations, educational institutions, hospital and health systems, foundations, policy leaders, health care companies, consumers, and individual nurses.
