The school’s physical space should stimulate creative incorporation of interdisciplinary methodologies in nursing.
Of primary concern is a need for more classroom space. Open, inviting areas with natural light are key advantages for attracting prospective students who are comparing the school’s facilities to those of peer institutions.
Faculty members, likewise, would benefit from physical space that reflects increasingly collaborative research techniques. These include areas that support “living laboratories” and house large-scale collaborative projects. Also of need are spaces that promote learning with investigators from around the globe.
