As a vital part of a world-renowned health sciences campus, the UCSF School of Nursing fosters excellence, diversity, and innovation in everything we do. Our rich history and dynamic present give ample proof of the global health care leadership we continue to provide. Our faculty members serve in advisory and leadership capacities in policy, health care delivery, and clinical and translational research. In the past decade, we have remained firmly in the first two spots in NIH research funding awarded to schools of nursing; in 2014, 2015 and 2016 we were again first.
Separated by only a courtyard, School of Nursing faculty and students work closely with UCSF Health Nursing staff on many joint research, patient care, and education initiatives. Our students come from around the world. While here they combine their varied perspectives and fresh ideas with attentive mentoring and rigorous coursework to prepare for desperately needed leadership roles in patient care, research, health policy, and academia.
The UCSF School of Nursing is committed to recruiting and preparing students from diverse backgrounds to be national and international leaders in research, education, clinical practice, administration, policy, and other emerging areas. To achieve these goals, we must maintain a diverse, respectful learning environment where we value the unique perspectives and contributions of all members of the UCSF and broader healthcare communities. As educators of advanced practice nurses, nurse administrators, nurse faculty, public health, and health policy specialists, as well as nurse researchers, we have a responsibility to graduate well-educated, culturally sensitive health professionals who mirror the diverse populations they serve.
