Orange County Register

A $40 million gift to UC Irvine from Pimco founder Bill Gross – the biggest individual donation in school history – will be used to expand UCI’s nursing program during a time when skilled nurses will be in short supply.

A new building financed by the donation, to be named after Bill and Sue Gross, will become the fourth School of Nursing in the University of California system. The school has not yet set a time line for construction, officials said Tuesday.
