The Nursing and Science Building is rising to serve as a world-class research and teaching facility for students and faculty in the areas of biology, chemistry, computational and integrative biology, health sciences, nursing, and physics at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels at Rutgers University–Camden.
Currently under construction, the Rutgers Nursing and Science Building is expected to be completed in spring 2017.
When complete, the building will serve more than 1,000 nursing students at the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden and will also support students in Rutgers–Camden’s Ph.D. in computational and integrative biology program and its doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program. The facility will include classrooms, computer labs, conference rooms, lecture halls, student work and study stations, and administrative offices.
The $62.5 million project is being financed, in part, by proceeds from the “Building Our Future Bond Act,” a $750 million loan and grant program overwhelmingly approved by New Jersey voters in a 2012 ballot referendum.
Located at Fifth and Federal Streets in Camden, the 100,000-square-foot facility connects Rutgers University–Camden and the city’s University District with Cooper University Hospital , the Coriell Institute for Medical Research, and the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, creating an “eds and meds” corridor that will strengthen the city as a destination for cutting-edge science and health research and learning.
The Rutgers–Camden Nursing and Science Building already is winning praise! This signature new Rutgers facility in Camden has earned the 2017 New Jersey’s Leading Infrastructure Project Award from the New Jersey Alliance for Action. The award honors innovative, pioneering, and landmark construction initiatives across the state.
