New Presence for Coast College of Nursing

The start of a new year also brings a return of the College of Nursing to the Long Beach campus.  Since 2004 the Nursing faculty and staff have been housed in the renovated former Garden Park Hospital in Gulfport.  The new facility provides adequate faculty offices, conferences rooms, and lounge.  The facility also houses the Clinical simulation lab which is a critical component of the nursing curriculum.  In the simulation lab students have an opportunity to provide care for simulated patients with selected diagnoses, to develop clinical decision- making skills, and a place to debrief, evaluate, and reflect on the provided nursing care.
