Career Growth

UCSD Nurse

UC San Diego is proud to provide its nurses many opportunities to enhance their skill level by learning on the job. This leads to career advancement such as:

  • Advancement to Nurse Educator, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Nurse Manager (or Assistant Nurse Manager) and even Director-level positions.

We also encourage ongoing education as a path toward career advancement. Nurses who have their Associate's Degree are encouraged to seek their BSN, and those who have earned a BSN are encouraged to get their MSN.

These degrees open up new opportunities for each nurse, and those opportunities bring with them salary increases as well as additional responsibilities within the organization.
