A center for nursing excellence
Opened in January 2023, the Marie E. Bogner Center for Nursing Excellence is a 5,126 square foot space that houses smart classrooms, flexible skills learning areas and a lactation room. It also features a calm and inviting lounge and breakroom allowing staff a moment to relax or work on projects.
