Prospective faculty information guide
The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis was established in 2009 with the nation’s largest grant for nursing education. Leaders at the School of Nursing steadily chart a course of developing education curricula, approaches and programs aimed at keeping pace with the rapidly evolving health care environment and preparing a new breed of leaders who are skilled and nimble enough to become agents of change. As the school and its programs continue to evolve, faculty have the opportunity to participate in the advancement of a research agenda and an innovative curriculum to transform health care.
