The facility, located on our North Haven Campus, features 24 teaching laboratories, including an orthopedics lab, a rehabilitative sciences lab, a clinical skills lab, a five-room state of the art simulation suite, an intensive care unit, a health assessment lab, a physical exam suite, a physical diagnostics lab, a motion analysis lab and other special learning resources that set it apart from other universities.
Beginning in Summer 2013, the School of Nursing's facilities will be greatly expanded, with the opening of the new Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. The School of Nursing's existing building will be connected to a new state-of-the-art facility that will house the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine. The two buildings comprise 325,000 square feet designed for collaborative learning for students pursuing degrees in medicine, nursing and the health professions.
The new facility--currently under construction--will feature an operating room suite with two additional high fidelity simulation rooms, 48 pro-section stations, 16 standardized patient rooms, multiple team study rooms, student lounges and a vending area, an expanded health sciences library, a 350-seat auditorium, 17 additional classrooms and 10 seminar rooms that will seat from 12 to 150 students.
The School of Nursing also has a dedicated unit at Middlesex Hospital, which allows nursing students to work more closely with patients and staff nurses in a specific wing of the hospital.
