We’re Number One (Again!)

In 2011 the UCSF School of Nursing once again attracted the most federal research dollars of any US school of nursing, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

UCSF Health sciences schools received more NIH funds than any other public institution, as detailed in the campus news release.

Dean David Vlahov expressed his pride in the faculty and staff who were responsible for this success by issuing a hearty “Well Done” to all.

Here are the top 10 Schools of Nursing ranked in order of NIH research funding.
