Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing

The school’s vision is to transform health care through nursing education and research.

nursing education through a comprehensive educational model that incorporates scientific rigor alongside inter-professional training. Its graduates will serve as educators, researchers and leaders who promote health, advance quality of care and safety and shape policy.

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.
