VUSN Ribbon Cutting

(L-R) School of Nursing Dean Linda Norman, Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Susan R. Wente and Board of Trust Chairman Bruce Evans cut the ribbon for the School of Nursing building expansion.

In late January, officials with Vanderbilt University School of Nursing hosted a grand opening event to celebrate completion of their $23.6 million expansion project that includes technologically advanced classrooms and simulation lab, along with student services offices.

Speaking to guests that included healthcare leaders, federal and state officials, donors, university leadership, students, faculty and staff, Vanderbilt University Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos noted the ways in which the expansion reflects Vanderbilt's approach to the field of nursing.

"The School of Nursing is deeply committed to improving the quality of healthcare and to educating the professionals who will provide that care in our communities and around the globe," said Zeppos. "This building captures the cutting-edge and unique interdisciplinary way of teaching and conducting research that has made the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing a national model for education, discovery and advancing human health."

Check out next month's issue of Nashville Medical News for a deeper dive on how the new facilities support and enhance VUSN's educational mission.
