The UCSF School of Nursing offers programs to meet the needs and interests of a diverse student population. From our nursing entry program to our Master of Science Program, Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and PhD programs, we're here to help you advance your nursing career and change health care for the better.
The University of California, San Francisco’s School of Nursing takes great pride in being a national leader in nursing, and as such, continuously reviews our educational programs for quality and consistency to national requirements. Currently, we are reviewing all of our professional nursing degree programs (Master’s Entry in Nursing, Master of Science program including the Post-Master’s certificate program, and the Doctor of Nursing Practice) to ensure that they meet required and anticipated regulatory changes.
Please check the UCSF School of Nursing website in late August 2022 for updates to our educational programs now under review for possible revision in the near future. At that time, we will provide new information about pre-licensure study and our application process, which is expected to open in late 2022.
