California nursing schools are considered some of the highest quality medical certificate and degree programs in the country, which coincides with the Golden State's dedication to providing affordable and quality healthcare services to its citizens.

To ensure top-quality medical care for all people, California state law requires that nurse practitioners must meet all of California's nursing education requirements and pass California's nursing licensing examination in order to practice medicine in the state.

Like many other U.S. states, California is now heavily recruiting trained nurses - including RNs, CNAs, LVNs, LPNs, and APNs - to keep up with the healthcare needs of CA citizens. The state's overall population continues to grow, and the number of senior citizens 65 years and older is also increasing. This growth, coupled with an aging nurse workforce that is nearing retirement, has created and will continue to create many job opportunities for California nursing school graduates.
