RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Today the Truckee Meadows Community College Foundation announced a $2 million gift from the Nell J. Redfield Foundation, kicking-off the capital campaign for a new TMCC Health Science Center.
To meet Nevada’s growing demand for highly trained and qualified nurses, TMCC says the Health Science Center will provide needed space to accommodate the state’s leading nursing program’s future development.
Responding to changing industry trends, TMCC says they are investing in new instructional space that is specifically designed to accommodate the increasing demand. When complete, the $10 million state-of-the-art project will include construction of the 16,000-square-foot Health Science Center and renovations to the existing 25,000-square-foot High Tech Center. Additions to the program include a 4,200-square-foot high-tech nursing lab with four technologically advanced instructional simulation rooms, two debrief rooms for faculty-student review, two 40-person classrooms, faculty offices, a dedicated lab storage area and student dress/locker room.
