Gallaher Hall (2014)
The Nursing Program, Physician Assistant Studies Program and Doctor of Physical Therapy Program will be housed in Gallaher Hall, our new state-of-the-art health and medical sciences facility. The new building includes two nursing skills labs equipped with up-to-date equipment, modern classrooms, a simulation/intensive care unit, control room and exam prep room.
The skills labs includes six beds, each with a hospital-like wall unit, interactive mannequins, IV pumps and other technology and equipment which will enable students to develop and master the nursing skillset required for quality patient care. The intensive care unit includes video equipment, monitors and a simulation mannequin that is monitored by faculty in the control room. Students will also have access to an electronic medical records system, allowing them to learn how to store and effectively read a patient’s comprehensive medical history. In addition, the classrooms are designed to provide network ports for nursing degree student computer connections, an AV console and display screens.
