As a vital part of a world-renowned health sciences campus, the UC San Francisco School of Nursing fosters excellence, diversity, and innovation in everything we do. Our rich history and dynamic present give ample proof of the global health care leadership we continue to provide.
Our faculty members serve in advisory and leadership capacities in policy, healthcare delivery, and clinical and translational research. In the past decade, we have remained firmly in the first two spots in NIH research funding awarded to schools of nursing; in 2010 and 2011, we were again first.
Separated by only a courtyard, School of Nursing faculty and students work closely with UCSF Medical Center Nursing staff on many joint research, patient care, and education initiatives.
Our students come from around the world. While here they combine their varied perspectives and fresh ideas with attentive mentoring and rigorous coursework to prepare for desperately needed leadership roles in patient care, research, health policy, and academia. Our graduate specialties consistently rank among the best in US News & World Report assessments of professional graduate programs.
