Decade of Discovery graphicThis year, 2020, marks a significant milestone for the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis. The first 33 students embarked upon their graduate education at the school 10 years ago. In the decade since, the school’s founders, faculty, staff, advisers, friends, partners and supporters discovered their role in advancing health and igniting leadership.

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing grew out of the shared vision of UC Davis and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Now, more than 650 alumni make an indelible impact on the clinics, classrooms and communities in which they serve. They embody and enact the vision of our founders from bedside care to individuals and families to bold changes in health care systems across California and the nation.

Though a young school, our renewed vision of optimal health and health care equity for all propels us forward in a new decade and beyond.

Family caregivers: invisible no more
Presentation highlights innovative School of Nursing research.
Family caregivers provide over 80% of long-term care to frail, older adults and yet they remain largely invisible in the health care system. The Family Caregiving Institute at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing works to support caregivers and increase capacity of health care professionals to better partner with families. Terri Harvath is an internationally recognized expert in gerontological nursing. Whether in teaching, research or clinical practice, her passion centers on the health and health care for frail, older people and their family caregivers.
