Our APP workforce is growing

UC Davis is at the forefront of incorporating CRNAs, NPs and PAs as part of interprofessional care teams to support increasing numbers of complex care patients. Advanced practice providers (APPs) are vital parts of the multidisciplinary teams caring for our patients in the UC Davis Health System. APNs are registered nurses who have gained advanced preparation for expanded clinical roles by earning a master’s degree in nursing and receiving specific training and skills. With their increased skills and knowledge base, the APNs within UC Davis Health System are able to fulfill the UC Davis Nursing Mission and provide science-based, technologically precise, compassionate patient care.
