The UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing celebrated the opening of its new home building with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in September. The building features collaborative workspaces, a simulation center and the 200-seat Sue Gross Auditorium.
The nursing school trains students for various roles in health care, from hands-on patient care to teaching, management and research. The new building is part of UCI’s landmark “health sciences district” at California Avenue and Michael Drake Drive. The district unites its schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacy and population health with a new integrative health institute and medical research facility.
UCI Health is also constructing a new $1.4 billion medical complex on Jamboree Road that will include a new hospital, an advanced-care outpatient center and a comprehensive cancer-care facility.
