Auburn University recently dedicated its new School of Nursing building to bring students and faculty together. Construction on the 89,000-square-foot building began in spring 2016, and is now complete providing a home for new nursing classrooms, offices, and simulation labs all under one roof.
Ashley Westberry, a senior in the School of Nursing, tells BizJournals.com, “The new building serves as a proud place that we can call home. It will bring a name to nursing as a whole on Auburn’s campus. The building will serve as a way to say, ‘We’re here and doing amazing things.’ I am truly honored to be a part of this program and excited to see where it is headed in the future.”
Auburn’s School of Nursing has grown from 55 new students a year in 2009 to 210 new students this semester, creating a need for more faculty and a new and improved space. New resources in the nursing building include a skills lab and advanced simulation suite with 21 high-fidelity mannequins and four observation areas. The building also includes new study spaces, outdoor areas, and dining options.
One of the most important features of the new building is that it is designed with the nursing student in mind. According to Auburn.edu, every designed decision was carefully made in order to best enhance the student experience.
