Nursing Education Investment Grants

Nursing Education Investment Grants

The Foundation for California Community Colleges awards Nursing Education Investment Grants to support projects that facilitate, coordinate with, or complement efforts to educate and train nurses through California community colleges.


2019 Nursing Education Investment Grants Awardees

Two projects were selected for funding based on their responsiveness to priority needs in the nursing education field and their ability to support projects that facilitate, coordinate with, or complement efforts to educate and train nurses through the California Community Colleges. The awardees are:

  • College of the Redwoods - Del Norte LVN/Paramedic-RN Bridge Expansion: $96,054
  • Riverside City College - Concurrent Enrollment Program Implementation: $348,904

College of the Redwoods will expand a registered nursing pathway into a rural region that has critical nursing shortages. Riverside City College will implement and promote scaling of a concurrent enrollment program that enables nursing students at community colleges to simultaneously progress toward bachelor of science degrees in nursing from California State Universities. This project will also address cost barriers by providing access to financial aid through California State Universities. Each project was noted for its distinct impact and alignment with the California Community Colleges’ Vision for Success.
