Prospective faculty information guide

Assistant Adjunct Professor Jann Murray-Garcia

UC Davis is committed to building a more diverse faculty, staff and student body as it responds to the changing population and educational needs of California and the nation. The following links provide prospective faculty a quick guide to information about the School of Nursing, UC Davis Health System and UC Davis.

Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing

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. 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.

UC Davis Health System

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing is part of 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 800-member physician group known as the UC Davis Medical Group- all located on the Sacramento campus near downtown. Unique distinctions of UC Davis Health System include a fully-accredited children’s hospital, a NCI-designated cancer center, a level-I trauma center and burn unit, and a comprehensive range of outpatient services. The campus also includes an award-winning education center and library, the California Center for Health and Technology, the NIH-funded Clinical Translational Science Center, the Center for Reducing Health Disparities and dozens of other clinical, educational and research centers.

UC Davis and University of California

Through a distinctive tradition of core-discipline excellence, interdisciplinary collaborations and productive partnerships, UC Davis teaches students to think critically, objectively and creatively and to be lifelong learners, engaged leaders and productive citizens; pursues research to advance knowledge and to address state, national and global challenges; and serves the public through the generation, broad dissemination and application of knowledge. Located close to the state capital, the university offers interdisciplinary graduate study and more than 100 undergraduate majors in four colleges—Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Engineering, and Letters and Science— and advanced degrees from six professional schools—Education, Law, Management, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Nursing.
