After a summer of construction, it’s here – up and running and occupied – the new home of Hiram’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
Located on the top floor of Teachout-Price Hall, the new BSN home was made possible in part through a $100,000 grant from the GAR Foundation, and additional significant donations from Brennan family Foundation, Harley C. & Mary Hoover Price Foundation, and The Abington Foundation. The new facilities include a state-of-the-art nursing clinical learning laboratory with acute and primary care work stations, computerized simulation manikins, and video recording; a nursing informatics classroom; and faculty offices, classrooms, and meeting rooms.
Hiram’s BSN program received approval by the Ohio Board of Nursing and Ohio Board of Regents in 2007, and the new facilities and labs are a huge asset. Students receive hands-on training in the nursing simulation skills lab. This provides a dynamic environment of high-tech equipment, representative of what nurses find in today’s workplace, and the latest simulated models: SimMan®, SimBaby®, Surgical Sally®, Resuci® CPR manikins, and other simulation procedure models.
