College Turns 100, Becomes Samuel Merritt University

From: NurseWeek

On Jan. 27, the institution formerly known as Samuel Merritt College became Samuel Merritt University.

The name was changed to reflect the institution's 100-year transformation from a small nursing school to a multidisciplinary health sciences institution, according to a university press release.

The university, which offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in nursing, physical and occupational therapy, and podiatric medicine and master's degrees for physician assistants, plans to offer doctorate degrees in nursing and pharmacy next year.

Nearly 1,300 students are enrolled at the university, which has campuses in Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and San Mateo.
