Abortion Care Training Incubator for Outstanding Nurse Scholars

How A UCSF Nurse Helped Shape a New California Health Policy

Abortion Care Training Incubator for Outstanding Nurse Scholars (ACTIONS) launched in Fall 2018 as an innovative program that seeks to connect, mentor, and support pre- and post-doctoral scholars looking to pursue a PhD or postdoctoral studies at the School of Nursing (SON) at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

The program provides funding for pre- and postdoctoral scholars to design studies that prioritize reproductive justice as the primary approach to reproductive health services provision, including abortion, birth, contraception, healthy sexuality, parenting, and pleasure.

We are committed to supporting scholars who are enthusiastic and passionate about transformational change toward reproductive health and justice. This fellowship provides a unique opportunity to train the next generation of thought leaders and change agents in nursing leadership and faculty positions around the country. As the program grows, we also have launched several research and policy advocacy projects focused on sexual and reproductive health workforce issues.
