A New Home to Health Sciences

The College’s thriving and growing nursing/allied health programs have a new home on JTCC’s Chester campus! Relocated from leased space off-campus, the new nursing suite in Bird Hall provides state-of-the-art facilities that offer authentic learning experiences in a setting that emulates a hospital wing. New health sciences labs include nursing and EMS skills labs and simulation labs as well as a nurses’ station. Bird Hall is also home to new natural science labs and a shared “commons” space designed to promote interdisciplinary exchange between the natural and health sciences. Science faculty offices, shared classrooms and a learning lounge for informal learning and social activities complete the learning community at Bird Hall.
