Nursing facilities

Nursing arts laboratory

Beginning in the fall of 2018, Northwestern’s nursing classrooms and labs will be in the college’s brand new building for the natural and health sciences, which will also house the biology and chemistry departments. State-of-the-art facilities for student-nurses include:

  • Patient rooms with hospital beds
  • Multiple advanced human patient simulators—including an adult, child and pregnant mother (with newborn)
  • IV training arms and other trainers
  • A hospital-based computerized medication system
  • An electronic health record simulation program

Human cadaver laboratory

Northwestern nursing students also have the unique opportunity to improve their body of knowledge in the college’s human cadaver lab.
