The number of available nursing jobs in California is expected to rise dramatically over the course of the next decade. The California government recently announced that the State would experience a shortage of 47,000 nurses in 2010, rising to 116,000 by 2020. The State has set up special funding and educational opportunities to help train people to help fill this extreme California nursing job glut.
A vast majority of the available California nursing jobs will be focused in the major metro areas of Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. However, opportunities exist throughout the State.
