Mission Statement

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis cultivates academic excellence through immersive, interprofessional and interdisciplinary education and research in partnership with the communities serves. Faculty, staff and students discover and disseminate knowledge to advance health, improve quality of care and shape policy.

Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Degree Program

Hosted by the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Degree Programs prepare nurse leaders, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, researchers and faculty in a unique interdisciplinary and interprofessional environment. The full-time, academic, doctoral program prepares graduates as leaders in health care, health policy and nurse faculty/researchers at the university level. The master's degree Physician Assistant Studies program prepares graduates to deliver care as physician assistants. Graduates of the professional master's degree leadership program are prepared for health-care leadership roles in a variety of organizations and as nurse faculty at the community college and prelicensure education levels. Graduates of the master's degree Nurse Practitioner Program are prepared to deliver care as nurse practitioners.

Faculty

The UC Davis Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group includes a wide cross-section of academic disciplines with faculty from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing as well as UC Davis Health System and other UC Davis schools, colleges, and departments. Within the graduate group faculty are experts in nursing, medicine, health informatics, nutrition, biostatistics, public health and other fields.

Ideal students for the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Master of Science — Leadership Track are those with experience or interest in transforming health care through nursing education and research. They want to focus on important societal health issues through the work of advancing health and improving the systems that provide health services.

Graduates of this program are prepared for academic and leadership positions. Graduates exercise leadership through scientific thinking, responsibility, initiative, cultural inclusiveness, knowledge of organizations and system change, teamwork and a commitment to healthy communities.

The M.S.—Leadership Track program is a full-time, professional degree program that prepares graduates for health-care leadership roles in a variety of organizations and as nurse faculty at the community-college level. Some examples include:

  • Leaders of health organizations and agencies—such as community clinics, trade associations, advocacy groups—improving quality of care and work environments, and advancing health outcomes and health-care effectiveness and efficiency
  • Community college and other prelicensure nursing faculty—teaching the next generation of nurses
  • Legislative and governmental agency staff and leadership developing, influencing and implementing policy to improve access and outcomes (not limited to health agencies but other organizations that provide public infrastructure such as transportation, planning or parks and recreation)
  • Careers across the health-care sector, such as insurance, pharmaceutical, hospital, home health, aging support services, adoption services, chronic illness support services and medical equipment industries fostering the integration of excellence in clinical care, management, policy, education and research

Master of Science students take core courses plus electives and must complete a thesis. This is a five-quarter program. Core courses are offered fall, winter and spring quarters (not summer) on the UC Davis Sacramento campus. Students in the master’s-degree leadership program should expect to be on campus at least two days a week. The majority of the program’s core classes are conducted all-day Thursdays and Fridays. Students should expect that some quarters they need to be available on certain weekends and nights. Electives are offered on different days for all students and may be located on either the Sacramento or Davis campus.

A mandatory Leadership Immersion Week serves as an orientation for students. This full-time, three-day experience runs Wednesday through Friday the week before fall quarter begins. Throughout the week, students experience nursing leadership, team building and develop faculty relationships. The coursework provided that week serves as the foundation for the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate program curriculum.
