The UC San Francisco School of Nursing will use its educational, research, and clinical expertise — and its global leadership position — to anticipate and respond to the rich and ever-changing environment in which we train diverse health care professionals, conduct research, deliver care, and provide public service.
Advancing the Global Classroom
Registered Dietitian and Assistant Clinical Professor Katie Ferraro shares an interview from our Massive Open Online Course Nutrition for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. The School of Medicine’s Robert Lustig, a professor of pediatrics and author of the new book Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease, shares his charge against sugar’s role in our national obesity epidemic.
The UC San Francisco School of Nursing has been among those forging a critical role for nurse researchers, which balances our profession’s unique strengths with opportunities for inter-professional, translational work. In 2011, and five times in the last eight years, UCSF has been ranked first among US Schools of Nursing in National Institutes of Health (NIH) research funding.
Patient Care Excellence
Faculty from the UC San Francisco School of Nursing fill leadership roles at some of the San Francisco Bay Area's most widely respected community clinics, outpatient facilities, and hospitals, including UCSF Medical Center, which was ranked seventh nationwide in “Best Hospitals 2010-11” by US News & World Report.
