Programs

The California Institute for Nursing & Health Care builds coalitions and partnerships to develop projects in several program areas to transform the capacity of nurses to meet the evolving health needs of Californians:

  • Master Plan Development – CINHC is leading statewide efforts to develop a comprehensive statewide plan to guide efforts in six strategic focus areas.
  • Educational Capacity –  The Master Plan goals, Building Educational Capacity, Increasing Diversity, Education Redesign, as well as the Bay Area Nursing Resource Center, are examples of how CINHC makes a difference.
  • California Simulation Alliance – CINHC leads the CSA, a voice for simulation education — disseminating information, creating a common language, and facilitating state funding.
  • Leadership Development – Preparing nurse managers for leadership roles.
  • Diversity  – This program is developing a  framework for interventions that will result in an RN workforce that is racially and ethnically  aligned with California’s population.
  • Recruitment – Increasing the nursing workforce, recruiting men in to the profession, and assuring diversity.
