Technology & Modular Design

The technology and resources in the NHS Building foster cutting-edge healthcare standards and practices, support important research work, and set the benchmark for advanced, academic studies and instruction in nursing and health sciences.

The 90-station computer suite and long-distance learning classrooms on the second floor are the backbone of our extensive IT network, which has numerous access points throughout the building.

The modular design features of the STAR Center labs and teaching areas on the third- and fourth floors facilitate flexibility and promote student and faculty collaboration across the College.  They can be separated into individual units of instruction for a specific class, or combined in any number of ways to accomplish interdisciplinary teaching objectives.

We can even create an "all-hands on deck" emergency scenario that employs all units of both centers so that we can engage the complete healthcare team from first-response through post-acute rehabilitation.

Reproducing real-world environments and scenarios where students can make decisions, even mistakes, under safe and controlled conditions always transforms into valuable teachable moments.  In the NHS Building, the only limit for exploring new teaching capabilities is imagination.
