Celebrating our Doctoral Students

Students, staff, and faculty pose on steps of Faculty Alumni House

The School of Nursing Dean’s Office and Student Affairs team schedule events throughout the year that provide an opportunity for celebration, networking, and conversation with the Dean. On October 26, in keeping with the tradition of having second year doctoral students host a dinner for first year doctoral students, we held the School’s Doctoral Dinner at the Faculty-Alumni House. The annual dinner is always a fun and uplifting event, bringing together current doctoral students for fellowship and mentorship. Faculty affiliated with the doctoral program were also in attendance.

The School of Nursing doctoral students are truly the future of nursing and represent an integral component of our UCSF School of Nursing family. They assist our renowned faculty, help train and advise our extended nursing student population, and work tirelessly on their own pioneering nurse research. This is a motivated, accomplished, and generally fabulous group of young leaders. If you see them around campus, don’t be afraid to introduce yourself and ask them about their work—they are eager to learn and just as excited to share their discoveries with the public!
