Welcome to the official San Joaquin Valley Nursing Education Consortium website.
The San Joaquin Valley Nursing Education Consortium was formed with the express goal of coordinating the clinical placement process in order to mutually benefit both nursing service providers (agencies) and nursing programs.
Clinical planning is done on an annual basis using a systematic process and consistent forms.
Currently all the major nursing education programs, all the major health care facilities, as well as many other health care agencies are involved.
