UC Davis breaks ground on new $50 million nursing school
Sacramento Bee

Calling it “a classroom with no walls,” UC Davis officials broke ground this week on a new $50 million nursing school building with state-of-the-art learning spaces.

The 70,000-square-foot building, which will open in fall 2017, will become the primary home of the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing on UC Davis’ Sacramento campus.

As California faces possible nursing shortages in the next decade, the new building will allow UC Davis to triple its nursing school enrollment to 450 by 2021 and emphasize its patient-centered, collaborative approach to teaching.
