The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing

Prospective faculty information guide


The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing seeks visionary nurse educators and researchers to join the founding faculty at the new nursing school at UC Davis' Sacramento campus. The founding faculty have the unique opportunity to participate in the design, establishment and inception of a research agenda and an innovative curriculum to transform health care. They will join the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group.

Nationwide, salaries for faculty have been evaluated by many organizations and several reports conclude that nursing faculty are paid well below the market as compared to their peers who work in health-care delivery organizations. However, the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing pays market-based salaries that are commensurate with peers working in clinical and administrative settings, as well as faculty peers in the School of Medicine. This equity is important given the interprofessional commitment of the school.

The school also offers founding faculty start-up packages to ensure faculty have the tools and resources necessary to cultivate a rigorous academic and research program. The foundation for the School of Nursing's research capacity and support for research programs is integrated  within the infrastructure of the school. Faculty research programs are fully supported by a research and grants administration team and all project personnel are provided with a well-equipped office and appropriate space to conduct research.

In addition, the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing recognizes that in order to attract the best nursing educators and researchers from across the nation, other components of a start-up package are necessary so faculty may focus on transition to such a visionary institution while achieving an appropriate level of work/life balance. Such components include providing assistance for a partner/spouse who is looking for career opportunities as well as relocation resources and assistance.
