New School of Nursing building rendering

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis prepares successful leaders in health care. We offer programs for future nurses, physician assistants, family nurse practitioners and nursing science researchers. As one of the only graduate nursing schools committed to activating change where it’s needed the most, we go beyond clinical education with programs that provide graduates with the skills, confidence and vision to be change agents on many levels and with many different titles.

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis was established in March 2009 through a $100 million commitment from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Together, we work toward a future where health and well-being are open, accessible and equitable.

The school admitted its first classes in fall 2010. Currently, the school offers four graduate degree programs:

The graduate degree programs are led by the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group, an interprofessional team of more than 55 faculty members from disciplines including nursing, medicine, health informatics, nutrition, biostatistics, pharmacy, sociology and public health.

The School of Nursing is part of UC Davis Health, a hub of innovation that encompasses UC Davis Medical Center, UC Davis School of Medicine and UC Davis Medical Group.
