Ivy Tech Madison to Complete Nursing & Health Science Facilities Expansion

Facilities have not been renovated since 2008

                                           

MADISON Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College Madison campus is expanding its facilities to accommodate the growth of the nursing program and renovating health science areas that lead to high demand jobs. Currently, the facilities have not been renovated since 2008 and require updates to support the planned growth.

The scope of work includes expanding the nursing simulation lab to the second-floor east wing, adding new student lockers, and adding glass walls to enhance classroom visibility. In addition to the expansion, the library will receive upgraded lighting and an open lounge area for students and staff. The nursing expansion project serves as Phase 2 of the campus’s planned improvements, following the completion of Phase 1, which focused on renovating spaces on the first floor for Paramedic Science.

Madison campus’s partnership with Norton Healthcare and Norton’s King’s Daughters Health is a significant factor in the funding and support for the expansion project. Norton Healthcare has provided funding to support the growth of this nursing and allied health programs and ensure that the Madison community continues to have not only job opportunities, but well-trained nurses who can provide care at Norton King’s Daughter’s Health.

“This collaboration exemplifies the power of industry and education working together to strengthen our healthcare workforce and benefit our local community,” said Dr. Amanda Harsin, Ivy Tech Madison Chancellor. “Expanding and improving the spaces will allow an increase in our student capacity to assist with filling the need in health care.”
