2020 Highlights Graphic-California Newly Licensed RN Employment Survey
Since 2010, HealthImpact has conducted a survey of newly licensed registered nurses (RNs) focused on employment and entry into the workforce. Additional survey questions were added in the fall of 2019 to understand the social determinants of health and education both when they were nursing students and as they entered the workplace.
RNs newly licensed by exam in California in the prior 12-month period between September 2019 and August 2020 were invited to participate in the study. A total of 3,058 eligible nurses completed the survey for a 27.9% survey response rate.
