Published: Feb 22, 2006
The University of Tampa dedicated a new nursing skills laboratory on Wednesday, Feb. 22, in the nursing/communication building.

During the ceremony, Dr. Nancy Ross, chair and director of the UT nursing program, discussed the growth of UT's nursing programs and the importance of the facility, which is a first of its kind on campus.

"We are committed to graduating students ready to contribute to enhancing the health and wellbeing of all who need their care and attention," said Ross. "This lab provides the opportunity to teach all of the skills a nurse needs to have mastered prior to entering the profession."

The new laboratory was made possible in part by a gift from the Walter Foundation. The University also will continue to make full use of its nursing skills lab at Tampa General Hospital, said Ross.
