The Patricia A. Chin School of Nursing was dedicated as the first named school at Cal State LA.
Patricia A. Chin, who holds a Doctor of Nursing, earned a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Nursing at Cal State LA and taught at the University for many years, later serving as director and, upon her retirement, professor emerita.
Patricia Chin and her husband, Dr. William A. Chin, contributed a generous gift to the School of Nursing. The gift is supporting updates to the Nursing Simulation Lab, hands-on instruction for students, and continuing education for clinical faculty and nurses, and established the Chin Family Institute for Nursing.
“It is our hope that this unique collaboration and relationship between the Patricia A. Chin School of Nursing and the Chin Family Institute for Nursing, along with the new Nursing Simulation Center, will continue and carry on the tradition of excellence, drive change in the health care system and push boundaries far into the future,” Patricia Chin said at the ceremony in April 2018.
