The 2019-2020 Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) School Survey was designed to provide comparable data to prior surveys and was updated based on recommendations from the Board's
Nursing Education and Workforce Advisory Committee. The School Survey is primarily intended to collect data on pre-licensure registered nursing (RN) education programs in California. Since 2004-2005, pre-licensure nursing education programs that also offer post-licensure programs have been asked to provide data on their post-licensure programs. Note that the data presented in this report are only for post-licensure programs that also have an approved pre-licensure program in California. Programs that are located outside California and offer post-licensure education online are not included.

The California Board of Registered Nursing commissioned the University of California, San Francisco to develop the online survey instrument, administer the survey, and report data collected
from the survey. Revisions to the post-licensure sections of the survey may prevent comparability of some data.

The survey collected data about nursing programs, their students, and their faculty from August 1, 2019, through July 31, 2020. Demographic information and census data were requested for October 15, 2020.
