In Fall of 2013, the faculty and staff of the Tanner Health System School of Nursing moved into the new, state of the art nursing building on the Carrollton campus.  In summer of 2015, the opening of the New UWG Newnan, which includes a beautiful skills laboratory and simulation suite for nursing took place. Combined, the UWG Newnan and the SON building at the Carrollton Campus provide a total of 17 stations for low-fidelity skills practice, two physical examination rooms, nine hospital simulation rooms with human patient simulators and two home health high-fidelity simulation.

The new School of Nursing facilities enhance enrollment growth to address the nursing and nursing faculty shortage by:

  1. Providing the ideal environment to prepare BSN nurses to deliver safe and effective care in today’s complex health care environment
  2. Advancing the education of nurses prepared to provide leadership and education through the RN to BSN and MSN programs.
  3. Preparing nurses qualified for academic educator roles with the EdD in Nursing Education program.
