Transforming health care through nursing education and research

Through a commitment of $100 million, we launched the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at the University of California, Davis. This gift represents the nation’s largest grant for nursing education and aligns with our founders’ vision to improve the quality of patient care. The school cultivates academic excellence through immersive, interprofessional and interdisciplinary education and research in partnership with the communities it serves. Its graduates will serve as educators, researchers and leaders who promote health, advance quality of care and safety and shape policy.

In 2010 the school admitted its first classes in master’s and doctorate degree programs. Three years later the school enhanced nurse practitioner and physician assistant programs to offer master’s degrees, given the important role that these positions play in our nation’s new models for providing health care.

The school of nursing is part of the UC Davis Health System, an integrated, academic health system encompassing UC Davis School of Medicine, the 619-bed-acute-care hospital and clinical services of UC Davis Medical Center and the 800-member physician group known as the UC Davis Medical Group.
