Sac State Nursing ready to move in to CalSTRS Bulding
Sacramento State’s Division of Nursing foresees more elbow room come 2010.
While the Division prepares future nurses to address the state-wide shortage, it’s also preparing for a critical move. The former CalSTRS building on Folsom Blvd.-to be renamed Folsom Hall-will become the headquarters for the Division of Nursing next year. The building adds 188,000 square feet of new campus space that will house both University academic and auxiliary programs.
A video illustrating the conditions at the current nursing building and a preview of Folsom Hall is available at www.csus.edu/pa/video/20090923_CalSTRS.html.
Ann Stoltz, chair of the Division of Nursing, says, “With 80 students, we’re having to shuffle labs for 12 hours a day to get all the students through the labs. It’s important that we’re able to provide more experience for our new students so we can turn out the best professional nurses we can.”
