UCI Gets Approval To Open Nursing School, Doubling Number Of Students In 10 Years
UC Irvine gained approval Thursday to open a much anticipated school of nursing that will double the number of nursing students in a decade, helping meet the expected demands of an aging population. UC Regents voted to establish the Sue and Bill Gross School of Nursing, propelled by a $40 million donation given by the Gross Family Foundation last year. Construction of a building on campus will begin in 2018. (Perkes, 1/26)
