Keene, NH – Engelberth Construction, Inc. of Keene, New Hampshire recently completed a new state-of-the-art nursing simulation and skills lab for Keene State College’s newly accredited nursing program. Featuring the latest in nursing education technology, a former computer lab in Rhodes Hall was converted into two areas: The Simulation Lab consists of two intensive care hospital rooms with a shared control room.
The Nursing Fundamentals Lab is a large, open space which includes five hospital beds equipped to mimic a general hospital, complete with high-tech mannequins, a nurse’s station, general exam area, classroom area and an office. A debriefing room and storage area round out the training facility, designed by Lavallee Brensinger Architects.
The renovation began in mid-August and was completed in time for the new nursing class’ arrival in January. Rhodes Hall remained occupied throughout construction.
