Emmanuel College Inaguaral Nursing Class

By G. Greene Construction on March 30, 2021

G. Greene Construction supports Emmanuel College as they put themselves on the map for Nursing Students. 

Located in the Longwood Medical Area, Emmanuel College presents itself to the nursing community with a new, state-of-the-art Nursing Simulation Laboratory. The project consists of 10,568 square feet of simulation lab and student wellness center space. The existing space housed the Campus Bookstore which G. Greene previously moved to an adjacent building on campus. To replicate existing state-of-the-art patient rooms in nearby hospitals, G. Greene planned and installed intricate millwork to incorporate headwalls and new finishes throughout the space. The scope of work also included craning a new rooftop unit and all new mechanicals, office spaces, common areas and patient rooms. 

The main Skills Lab holds 12 bays with functional headwalls as well as learning space. The rooms rollable furniture and collapsible, dividing wall allows for the space to be used in smaller group classes. Additionally, within the space two high-fidelity simulation labs were created. Adjacent to these labs are de-briefing rooms with one way glass to observe classmates as they learn. 

Remarks From Emmanuel College on their new space,

“Within the Maureen Murphy Wilkens School of Nursing & Clinical Sciences’ new nursing laboratory, Emmanuel College students will gain the type of hands-on, practical experience that helps them emerge as well-rounded, in-demand nursing professionals. The space includes the Joanne DiGeronimo and Anthony Migliario Nursing Skills Laboratory, a high-fidelity simulation lab, de-briefing room, new office space and more. Within this setting, every nursing student will gain clinical preparation across nursing specialties including medical, surgical, mental health, pediatrics, maternity and women’s health, and community nursing.

The laboratory space and simulators offer a true hospital-like setting and are equipped with the exact equipment found in neighboring hospitals within the renowned Longwood Medical and Academic Area. The skills lab includes 12 bays and six simulators, while the simulation lab allows students to work within a team setting to perform patient care. These valuable new nursing spaces will expose Emmanuel students to real-life experiences that will prepare them along their journeys to becoming practicing nurses.”
