The new University of Alabama Capstone College of Nursing provides clinical instruction for University of Alabama nursing students. The $12.2 million, Greek revival style building is the gateway to the entrance of the UA campus.
Designed and designated solely for nursing education, the state-of-the-art building features two seminar rooms, three classrooms, a 148-seat auditorium, a 25-station computer lab, a 34-bed clinical practice lab and six computer-controlled patient simulation labs. The building also has two study rooms, a student lounge, conference rooms and faculty offices. As the newest teaching facility on the University campus, this building is fully wired with the latest in computer technology and audio/visual equipment, and is well equipped to prepare the nurses of the future.
The additional 43,000 square feet provided by the new building will aid in UA’s efforts to respond to calls from the health care profession for more nurses.
