A ribbon cutting held last week celebrated the completion of construction on the $17,000,000 renovation and expansion of the College of Nursing Building at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). With the original square footage now more than doubled to 88,000 square feet, the building comprises classrooms, student gathering spaces, faculty offices, a 250-seat auditorium, and a 10,615-square-foot Learning and Technology Resource Center (LTRC). A state-of-the-art facility, the LTRC features a 16-bed hospital lab, a 16-table assessment room, four Advanced Practice provider clinical examination rooms, five high-fidelity simulation laboratories, an obstetric/pediatric four-bed laboratory, an IV practice room, a Pyxis® medication room, a home-health simulation room, and two debriefing rooms. The building was also brought into compliance with accessibility standards, the mechanical system was updated, and a larger elevator was added to accommodate medical equipment.
