Program Endorsement Brief: Nursing in the Greater Sacramento region
April 5, 2021
Analysis of occupational demand, wages and job posting data, educational attainment and supply, and employment outcomes for nurses in the North (Greater Sacramento) region. While jobs for registered nurses and licensed vocational nurses are projected to increase by 8% through 2024, entry-level training programs are constrained by the availability (or lack thereof) of clinical training spots in the region. The North COE recommends proceeding with caution in the development of new nursing programs.
