The newly renovated health sciences wing at FHU/Dickson will be dedicated Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016, at 2:00pm. The public is invited to attend.
The wing features labs for anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, microbiology and nursing skills. A nursing simulation observation room and a nursing classroom are also housed there. Nashville State Community College and FHU biology and chemistry classes began utilizing the new learning spaces in January 2016, and the FHU / Dickson Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program began Fall 2016.
The following organizations provided funds to assist in development of the facility: Goodlark Educational Foundation; Nashville State Community College; National Healthcare Corporation, Dickson; Tennova Healthcare-Regional, Jackson; The Jackson Foundation; and TriStar Horizon Medical Center.
“The renovation of approximately 7,000 square feet at FHU/Dickson has created a state of the art environment to teach and learn the art and science of the nursing profession,” Dr. Robert Spencer, director of the nursing program, said. “The latest in high-fidelity simulation mannequins, wireless infrastructure and classroom technology has created an ideal location to provide student instruction. Hospital equipment adds to the realism and training opportunities in the nursing skills lab. We were excited to have the first class of BSN nurses begin in late August,” he said.
FHU’s nursing program is approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. The Tennessee Board of Nursing gave its full approval in 2013. In February 2014, CCNE determined that all four accreditation standards had been met with no compliance concerns noted.
