UCSF is San Francisco's second-largest employer; with worksites at several medical centers and several other city locations. The School of Nursing Building is part of the UCSF Parnassus Avenue Campus, located near Golden Gate Park in the "Inner Sunset District" neighborhood, on the western side of the city of San Francisco. Click city map (JPG) or city map (PDF) or the image at right to see UCSF's Parnassus Campus and Laurel Heights locations.
To reach the UCSF Parnassus Avenue Campus, obtain driving directions, or for public transportation and additional maps, please see the Directions to UCSF web page. Also available: http://www.ucsf.edu/maps (UCSF web page).
Upon arriving at the campus, note that some of the buildings are set back and cannot be seen from the public street. It may be necessary to pass through the buildings fronting on Parnassus Avenue, using stairs or elevators to reach your destination.
In particular, the School of Nursing Building ("N") is positioned uphill and behind the Clinical Sciences ("C") Building at 521 Parnassus Avenue. However, interior hallways connect floors two through seven of building C to building N.
Information sessions are usually held in the second-floor classrooms in the School of Nursing Building, or in the Health Sciences West Tower ("HSW"). Because of the sloping terrain, the ground-level floor of the Nursing building is floor number two, and the ground-level floor of HSW is floor number three.
You must use elevators or stairways to reach floor levels 2 and 3 from the building entrances on Parnassus Avenue.
The following illustrations (click to view at full size) may be helpful in guiding you to the appropriate campus building. Note that both campus illustrations show the view looking southward (uphill).
