Los Angeles  Nursing Resource Center

In behalf of HealthImpact and LANRC Advisory Team, we wish you a Happy New Year!  We are grateful for your partnership and we look forward to working with you in the new year 2019.

2018 marked our 10th year of using the Centralized Clinical Placement System (CCPS) in Los Angeles region and we want to acknowledge your commitment in working together to coordinate and improve the clinical placement process.

The annual invoice covering Jan-Dec 2019 will be sent out electronically to participating schools and clinical agencies this month. There is no cost increase from the past year. 

Most clinical facilities, RN and LVN schools have completed schedules for Spring/Summer 2019 in CCPS and all pending requests should be completed this month. We will begin to process clinical placement requests for the Fall/Winter 2019 period. 

WELCOME to CCPS!

Please join us in welcoming a new site.
