Due to the rapid growth of nursing and allied health, over 30% growth in the past three years, we have outgrown the Nursing Education building on the Shreveport campus.
Primary areas that are lacking in space are the clinical laboratory where students learn to perform patient care-taking skills and computerized testing labs. Further, CONSAH does not have an area for students or faculty to maintain their own health, while learning to provide healthcare for others. In other words, we need a wellness facility, where students and faculty can engage in physical fitness and mental fitness exercises.
Additionally we need around 15 faculty offices, 6-8 modern large interactive compressed video classrooms, a meeting space large enough to accommodate all students, faculty and staff, and a modern library that utilizes only digital technology.
The overall goal is to provide a contemporary, spacious learning campus designed for students to practice their clinical skills, engage in interactive learning, become experts in use of modern patient-care technologies, and become enthusiastic members of a caring, holistic, professional collegiate community.
The building will be 3 stories and over 30,000 square feet – located across Elizabeth avenue from our existing CONSAH Shreveport campus. The buildings will be connected.
