Purpose/Background: The long-term strategic plan of the University of California Davis Health System included new schools of nursing and public health. The urgency of founding a nursing school was accelerated by two important factors: the growing nursing/nursing faculty shortage in California and a gift from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation of $100 million to launch a school intent on transforming health care. Based on personal experiences with health care, the donors made a substantial commitment to enhance the both the quality and quantity of nursing graduates at all levels in the state of California. Description of the Undertaking: UC Davis was selected as the site of the proposed Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing because of its strength in research and its commitment to interdisciplinary education. This school has several unique features: it will begin with the graduate programs, followed by the baccalaureate, allowing for early establishment of the research programs and the conceptual base for the school; the graduate degrees will be conferred by an interdisciplinary graduate group entitled "Nursing Science and Health Care Leadership;" and the medical school curriculum will evolve in concert with the development of the nursing curriculum to foster "shoulder-to-shoulder" education of health professional students. Outcomes: This presentation will describe the strategic processes involved in launching a new school, including collaboration with UC Irvine and community partners. The Inaugural Strategic Design Summit, held in September 2008, identified key attributes of the nurse of the future, the requisite knowledge base to prepare the nurse, and necessary innovations in curricula to promote transformation. Conclusions: Recommendations from the summit will be shared for reaction and feedback from the audience, including brainstorming additional potential collaborative opportunities within the Western Region.
