UC Davis nursing graduate students showcase scholarly work at annual academic symposium


Graduate students at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis showcase their scholarly work today at the 2022 Academic Symposium. The event kicks off at 10 a.m. on the UC Davis Sacramento campus.

In research poster displays and summaries of doctoral dissertations, master’s-degree nursing, physician assistant and family nurse practitioner students, along with Doctor of Philosophy candidates, will share their passion for leadership in health care.

“The diversity of dissertation and evidence-based research conducted by our students speaks volumes as to their talent, knowledge and passion to conduct transformative research and lead real change in health care,” said Janice F. Bell, associate dean for research.

Julie T. Bidwell, an assistant professor in the Family Caregiving Institute, delivers the keynote.

The students presenting are in one of four School of Nursing graduate programs led by the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group, an interprofessional team of more than 50 faculty members from various disciplines. Students working toward their Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership must complete a dissertation. Master’s-degree students collaborate in interprofessional teams in poster presentations.

Dissertation presentations can be viewed live on the school’s Facebook page.

This is the first time since 2019 that the event is in person. For a full line-up of presentations and the day’s events, visit the school’s website.
