This report analyzes the dynamics affecting demand and supply of active nursing professionals, including changing demographics, impact of the Affordable Care Act, and educational obstacles. We project that 1.6 million job openings for nursing professionals will become available through 2020.  

Here are the report's main findings:

  • The United States will face a shortfall of 193,000 nursing professionals in 2020.
  • Recruitment, training, and retention are contributing challenges to increasing the number of nurses working in the field.
  • Even though, nursing schools attract large numbers of applicants, they lack adequate faculty, facilities and clinical placement cites to train all qualified applicants.
Assessing College Readiness and Transfer report.

Too many students in California's community colleges are being placed into pre-college level coursework, lowering their probability of working their way to a college-level course and eventually transferring to a four-year university. New research from the RP Group suggests there is a better way of assessing first-time students so that fewer are required to take unnecessary pre-college level coursework. 


The Legislative Analyst's Office offers an update on the progress of the Associate Degree for Transfer program, which aimed to simplify the transfer pathway between community colleges and the California State University so that more students could transfer and earn four-year degrees. 


The Community College Research Center at Columbia University offers an excellent overview on transfer from community colleges to four-year institutions, including student transfer patterns, student outcomes, barriers to transfer, and the economic benefits of transfer.
