UCSF Computer Requirements

Both entering and continuing students should review the following web pages.

UCSF School of Nursing recommendations are generally parallel to those adopted by UCSF School of Pharmacy, which is why the link above leads to the Pharmacy School's web site.

Caution:  The majority of UCSF Nursing faculty have Windows-type PCs, so Apple Macintosh users should learn EXACTLY how to create fully compatible documents for Windows and Office. This means, for example, selecting compatible fonts such as "Times New Roman" and using simple PC-compatible file names ("dyspnea17.docx" instead of "Dyspnea/Fainting: A Case Study").  Shown below: Macintosh Word "Save Options" screen.
