Ongoing education is critical to providing safe, quality, evidence-based nursing care. To support the learning needs and professional development of nurses and ancillary staff, the Center for Nursing Excellence & Innovation offers an extensive array of educational offerings (including Online courses, Instructor-Led Classes, and Simulation) that cover a wide range of practice areas and clinical issues.


The majority of our courses are provided free to UCSF Medical Center employees. Courses, as indicated, are provider-approved for continuing education credits by the California Board of Registered Nursing and the Board of Behavioral Sciences. Certificates are issued upon completion of the course and any associated requirements.
