  Proven Results  
An independent study of San Francisco nursing programs reported a 29.6 percent increase in enrollment in the five-county Bay Area from 2004 to 2007. Evaluators stated that CCPS has helped facilitate up to 10.2 percent of this growth. They noted an increase in the percent of hospitals that placed students during non-traditional times (off-shift and weekend), and also that all clinical departments had an increase in placements.
