School of Nursing

Welcome to the UCLA School of Nursing homepage for the Health Sciences IT merger! This page is your one-stop-shop for all things related to the IT merger. DGIT is committed to sharing as much information as possible to help you plan for changes. Some of this information includes project timelines, user impact, training materials, and answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.

In addition to this page, we will also send information regarding upcoming changes to your UCLA School of Nursing email.

Upcoming workstation replacements/upgrades

DGIT will begin replacing or upgrading all eligible workstations and laptops in the School of Nursing in phases throughout the upcoming weeks. Devices identified for replacement are those that do not meet DGIT’s required performance standards. Devices that will not be replaced, will be upgraded to DGIT’s preconfigured Windows 10 system with our standard settings and software to match your previous device. As we get closer to replacing/upgrading your device(s), our teams will reach out to coordinate with you to set a date and time to assist you.
