CALNOC 2.0 represents the culmination of over 20 years of nursing scientific research, the creation of the first Nurse Sensitive Registry in both Inpatient and Ambulatory care settings and the development of NQF Nurse Sensitive Endorsed Measures.
In the winter of 2019, CALNOC completed its transition of its database and measures to Press Ganey. As a result, CALNOC is now embarking on a new path, returning to its roots in Health Services Research* with a continuing focus on nursing.
CALNOC 2.0 is pleased to introduce the CALNOC Nightingale Research Fund, a vehicle for innovative research and scientific inquiry on the contributions of nursing on patient care, safety and quality. This fund will provide grants, scholarships and matching funds to individual and institutions in furthering CALNOC’s mission and goals.
