MSOE to build $3 million nursing labs suite

The Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) announced today that it will begin construction soon on an experiential learning center for the MSOE School of Nursing.

New nursing labs and classrooms will be built on the first floor of the Student Life and Campus Center. The $3 million, 25,000 square-foot facility is expected to be completed this fall, and will be the new location for the School of Nursing classrooms, labs and faculty offices.
The new space is nearly quadruple the size of MSOE’s existing nursing labs.
“Students and faculty are extremely excited about this new space,” said Dr. Debra Jenks, School of Nursing department chair. “We educate nurses to care for patients, families and communities in incredibly complex systems. The quality of this space will match what faculty are currently doing in the curriculum.”
