Sacramento Business Journal

Five years after a nursing school was established at University of California Davis to build the ranks of nurse scientists and teachers, eight doctoral candidates have received their degrees. They are same eight who started class when the school opened its doors in 2010, an unusual lack of attrition. “They all graduated — and they did it in four years in a vigorous program at a Tier 1 university, which is remarkable,” said Marybeth Sharp, program director for the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation that donated $100 million to get the school going.
