About the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing
For 100 years, UC Davis has engaged in teaching, research and public service that matters to California and beyond. The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis was established in March 2009, UC Davis' first major initiative to address society's most pressing health-care problems in its second century of service. The school was launched through a $100 million commitment from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the nation's largest grant for nursing education. The vision of the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing is to transform health care through nursing education and research. Through nursing leadership, the school will discover knowledge to advance health, improve quality of care and health outcomes, and inform health policy.
The school admitted its first classes for the Master of Science — Leadership and Doctor of Philosophy Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership degree programs in fall 2010. In 2013, the School of Nursing began offering the Master of Science – Nurse Practitioner and Master of Health Services — Physician Assistant programs. All four programs are led by the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group, an interprofessional team of more than 40 faculty members from disciplines including nursing, medicine, health informatics, nutrition, biostatistics, pharmacy, sociology and public health. The faculty are also developing a fifth program, the Master’s Entry Program in Nursing, to prepare new nurses.
The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing is the sixth professional school at UC Davis, joining nationally-recognized programs in medicine, veterinary medicine, law, business and education, and a proposed School of Public Health.
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 1,000-member physician group known as the UC Davis Medical Group.
The school's administrative offices are located in the Education Building at X and 45th streets in the heart of the Sacramento campus.
