Due to emerging trends in healthcare and the critical role that nurses serve in patient-centered care, the College of Nursing at
the University of Iowa — a highly regarded provider of nursing education in the region — expanded enrollment for its nurse practitioner programs.
The modifications to the building will enable the College to address the needs they foresaw for updated technology and state-of-the-art facilities, while also adapting to current pedagogical methods that emphasize active student learning. The renovation will address numerous issues, including: space quality, program adjacency, accessible technology, equipment requirements, and much-needed student commons space. It will also include completely new several hybrid learning interactive classrooms.
