The Nursing and Science Building has opened to serve as a world-class research and teaching facility for students and faculty in the areas of health sciences, nursing, and physics at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels at Rutgers University–Camden.
The Rutgers Nursing and Science Building is open and ready to welcome students for the start of the 2017-18 academic year.
The building serves more than 1,000 nursing students at the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden and also supports students in Rutgers–Camden’s physics program and its doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program. The facility includes cutting-edge nursing simulation labs, classrooms (including an immersive learning classroom), computer labs, conference rooms, lecture halls, student work and study stations, and administrative offices.
The $62.5 million project was 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 is strengthening 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.
