The California Community Colleges serve more than 2.1 million students each year and is the largest system of higher education in the nation. The state's 112 community colleges are charged with providing workforce training, basic skills education, and preparing students to transfer to four-year universities. Seventy-six California community colleges operate registered nursing programs, enrolling a statewide total of 13,026 full-time-equivalent students (FTES). Enrollments have increased by about 31 percent since the 2008-09 academic year due to the development of new programs, expansion of enrollment capacity through partnerships with the healthcare industry, and federal and state funded programs and grants.
