Family Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant Program
to offer master’s degrees
Beginning in June 2013, UC Davis will offer master’s degrees for aspiring nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Complete program information will be posted by April 17, 2013, when the 2013-2014 Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA) opens. The current Family Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant certificate program is no longer offered and will close with the students who complete training in June 2014.
Within the new program, the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group will confer the Master of Science degree for nurse practitioner graduates and a Master of Health Services—Physician Assistant Studies for physician assistant graduates. The interprofessional degrees will be administered by the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing in close collaboration with the Department of Family and Community Medicine in the UC Davis School of Medicine.
Please note, beginning in summer 2013, graduate tuition and fees apply and a professional supplemental tuition fee is proposed, consistent with clinical education programs in the University of California. The final fee structure is expected to be commensurate with the Master of Science degree in Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership. For reference, please see this Web page regarding 2012 fees, which are provided as estimates only. Actual tuition, fees, and charges for the interprofessional degrees are subject to approval and change by the Regents of the University of California. Accordingly, final approved levels will likely differ from current Master of Science Degree in Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership levels.
Congratulations June 2012 Graduates!
