The 59,000-square-foot William N. Pennington Health Sciences Building opened in 2011 and is located adjacent to the Pennington Medical Education Building. With the purpose of moving toward interdisciplinary health care teams, it was constructed to meet sustainable, environmentally friendly building standards. The state of the art building includes classrooms, laboratories and simulated patient-care settings where students will participate in educational role-play with trained patients and faculty observers. The William N. Pennington Health Sciences building is also home to the Orvis School of Nursing. Located on the third floor, the Orvis School of Nursing includes its faculty and nursing offices, nursing skills lab, and administrative offices.
