Be sure to tag with School of Nursing as "affiliation" and "department/group.") For digital signage around the UCSF Campus, follow the instructions and share a JPG or PDF file (4.5 x 3 aspect ration/1200 x 800, at 96 dpi) to [email protected] two weeks prior to the event.
School of Nursing Weekly
School of Nursing Weekly is the best way to make sure your announcements, events, honors, and news listing(s) reaches all students, faculty, and staff.
There are communications, which are either regularly occurring or significant topically, that merit one-off broadcast messages. Here are some examples:
- Faculty recruitments, which include a lecture for candidacy as part of the position
- Dissertation defense for doctoral students
- Trainings that include all faculty / staff / students, or annual, all School lectures
While the above may appear as dedicated messages, they will also be included in School of Nursing Weekly. Be sure to submit 2 - 3 sentences along with a hyperlink to the School of Nursing Weekly using the online submission form before 3 PM on Thursdays.
Teaching Assistant, Teaching Residency, Graduate Student Research positions post using the online submission form to the TARA: Recruiting Teaching Assistants / Graduate Student Research / Research Assistant Positions board. Please use the word template to create the associated PDF advertisement. Positions are included in Nurse Weekly until filled and, when needed, may be shared directly with the students list(s).
Flyers and Posters
Flyers and posters are also a good way to publicize events. Student Life provides poster-making supplies for members of Registered Campus Organizations (RCO) or the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA).
Need Help getting the word out? Contact the Communicators Network through Chatter. This internal group is dedicated to UCSF awareness and enables members to share news, questions, and answers. If you are not already on Chatter, here are some quick instructions on how to join.
You may submit courses open to nursing students to be advertised in our Nurse Weekly using the following form.
Education Verification Request
If you would like to request Education Verification for a former UCSF nursing student use this form. * Files are uploaded securely and kept confidentially. The UCSF School of Nursing only verifies specific information such as type of specialty, courses completed, course content, clinical and/or didactic hours. If you need only need degree conferral date and dates attended please contact the National Student Clearinghouse.
Please be encouraged to submit news items that relate to student programs, current students, alumni, or faculty; or news that would be of special interest to these same audiences or to perspective students. For example:
- Awards and other milestones or accomplishments
- Activities that students or program faculty are involved in, especially those that are high profile; those that advocate for nursing or our student programs; make nursing understandable to a general audience; involve community engagement or partnerships with industry or external partners
- Outreach/diversity efforts
- Student volunteer efforts
Ideally, news items will be submitted in the form of a brief story that only needs light editing, but we need at the very least the “who, what, where, and when” and an appropriate photo. In some cases, we may also submit news items for Science of Caring, Pulse of UCSF, or pitch stories to UCSF.edu or Synapse on your behalf.
Events and news stories will be curated and may also be edited for length and style.
All of the School of Nursing social media accounts should be vetted and approved through the Dean’s Office. If you would like to create/establish a social media account for your program, please check with [email protected] and validate that you have a percentage of a job description formally tasked with the maintenance and support of this resource.
School of Nursing has one main Twitter handle: @UCSFNurse. We will tweet or retweet announcements or news related to any student, faculty, or staff programs. If you don't have a Twitter account, send us your suggested tweet along with smartphone photo, if possible, and we can put it out for you. Tweets must be 140 characters or fewer.
The following School of Nursing departments have active Facebook pages:
- UCSF School of Nursing
- UCSF Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care Program
- UCSF Certified Nurse-Midwife / Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Program
- UCSF Family Nurse Practitioner Program
