UMSL Plans $7 Million College Of Nursing Expansion To Meet Growing Demand

The University of Missouri-St. Louis College of Nursing will expand and renovate its Nursing Learning Resource and Simulation Center to help meet the growing demand for nurses.

The $7 million renovation project will add updated nursing equipment and new technology to the center. It will include a 5,000-square-foot expansion of simulation rooms and renovated skills labs.

The expansion will help UMSL train more nurses at a time when the nation is dealing with a nursing shortage because of the coronavirus crisis, UMSL Chancellor Kristin Sobolik said.

“The more nurses that we can train and provide to the region, then hopefully that decreases the nursing shortage and allows us to serve our community better in all things, including during COVID times, but also post COVID times as well,” Sobolik said.
