First School of Nursing students arrive at Yale’s West Campus

The first wave of students who will occupy the new Yale School of Nursing on West Campus arrived for orientation Aug. 19.

About 80 entering graduate and doctoral candidates received their first introduction to the new headquarters, which features dynamic simulation and behavioral labs, flexible and open classrooms, as well as study and group space to foster continual collaboration.

The renovated office building housing the School of Nursing also features a space called the “Hub” where student, faculty and researchers can meet and share ideas.

Eventually, 350 nursing students will arrive for the new school year and, in the process, transform West Campus, which has been primarily a research center since Yale acquired the 36-acre Bayer Healthcare complex in West Haven in 2007.
