Interim President Shelley Nickel said she believes the new building will prove to be a tremendous asset to the school.
“It is awesome. We’re just so excited about it. It’s such a great addition to the college,” she said. “Our nursing program is one of the best in the state, if not the entire country, with a 100 percent passing rate on the NCLEX — the national exam they have to take to practice nursing. With such a great program and group of students, I’m happy to finally have this facility for them to benefit from.”
Nickel went on to say that the Nursing and Allied Health Science building will serve the Gordon student body by providing a state-of-the-art educational building, and will be beneficial for the school, overall.
“We look at this as a really great recruitment for not only students, but faculty and staff, as well,” she said.
According to Gordon Public Information Specialist Tamara Boatwright, the 59,000-square-foot building will house classrooms, labs, administration offices, a library and records rooms.
“This facility is just the absolute epitome of the quality education we can provide our students,” Nickel said.
