Take a virtual tour of the School of Health Sciences’ new building
The School of Health Sciences Nursing Program has moved to the 6 Nickerson Building on the east end of campus.
The redesigned building provides flexible learning spaces for our nursing students with four 40-person classrooms, two seminar rooms, an advance practice learning classroom, faculty offices, and a Clinical Learning Lab.
The School of Health Sciences has taken a giant leap forward to prepare nursing students for the real world with the new Clinical Learning Lab. The entire third floor of the new SHS building is dedicated to clinical learning. It is a place for students to practice procedures allowing them the opportunity to practice skills to really build the muscle memory that goes along with doing the skills and preparing them for patient care in the clinical setting. Gaining these skills prior to being with the patient in a clinical setting allows them to gain proficiency with the procedure, better preparing them to focus on the needs of the patient, including engaging in relationship with the patient.
The new Clinical Learning Lab provides a realistic space, allowing the nursing student to comfortably practice in simulated hospital setting with much of the same equipment they will see in the clinical setting.
Seattle Pacific is known for developing students of competence and character, as well as delivering robust academics and relationship-centered learning grounded in Christian faith and values. Those three things work together to develop a competent nurse of strong character who can provide expert care in the clinical setting. The new Clinical Learning Lab provides a realistic space, allowing the nursing student to comfortably practice in simulated hospital setting with much of the same equipment they will see in the clinical setting.
We could not be here today without the support of our community and our generous donors. The equipment and facility are dependent upon that support. The investment of our donors ensures that the next generation of nurses, nurse-leaders, scholars, and practitioners is fully prepared for the future challenges in healthcare. The provision of the new learning spaces, upgraded simulation equipment, and expanded Clinical Learning Lab will help us maintain our status as one of the top nursing programs in the region. We could not be more grateful for the opportunities it will provide our students and the patients that they will be caring for in the future.
