Then we’re one of the first to present on the airwaves – the founding dean of UCI’s Sue and Bill Gross School of Nursing and a professor of nursing science, Dr. Adey M. Nyamathi (minute 33). She links current initiatives with the degrees offered at the school, to prepare these vaunted professionals, in the trenches, in delivering better healthcare for all.
