New home for SimMan, College of Nursing on Gulf Park Campus | Health
SimMan, a fully computer-operated total body simulator used by University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast nursing faculty to bring more realism into replicated clinical settings for their students, was among the first to call the new 10,000 square foot Nursing Building on the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach home.
“For more than seven years following Hurricane Katrina, we have worked towards fully returning to the Gulf Park campus,” said Dr. Frances Lucas, vice president and campus executive officer at Southern Miss Gulf Coast. “With the new construction and renovation of our science and nursing buildings, plus Lloyd Hall, our students will be educated in state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories designed to better assist them in their future careers.”
The $1.5 million Nursing Building features two laboratories – one for basic skills and the other for advanced skills, which are central elements to the academic program. The building provides both student learning and study areas. Faculty offices and specific areas for faculty and student interaction, both private and public, have been designed to foster a community-oriented environment.
