Samuel Merritt University

Samuel Merritt University, originally a school for nursing known as Samuel Merritt College, is an accredited university for the health sciences that was founded almost a century ago. Its campus is part of the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center based in Oakland, California. The university’s undergraduate and graduate programs offer studies in nursing, as well as other post-graduate degrees in therapy, physician assistance, and podiatric medicine. The university’s undergraduate nursing degree is affiliated with three other institutions – including Notre Dame de Namur University, Holy Names University, Mills College, and Saint Mary’s College of California. As well as its association with the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, the university also shares connections with the Sutter Health Network.

Several of the university's degrees have online components but the school doesn't offer any degrees that can be completed entirely online.

The greater East Bay receives all of its physician assistants and professional and physical therapists as well as a majority of its nurses from Samuel Merritt.
