  About Us  
The Centralized Clinical Placement System and Centralized Faculty Resource Center were designed by the Foundation in partnership with the California Institute for Nursing & Health Care (CINHC), funded through a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The NRC was piloted in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2004, and has since expanded to Los Angeles and Bakerseld, California; South Florida; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Houston-Galveston and Corpus Christi, Texas.
