The College’s growing nursing and allied health programs have a new home on BCC’s Chester campus! Relocated from leased space off-campus, the new nursing suite in Beacon Hall provides state-of-the-art facilities that rival and exceed those of Virginia’s 4-year college nursing programs, offering authentic learning experiences in a setting that emulates a hospital wing.
New health sciences labs include nursing skills labs and an EMS training lab on a simulated hospital corridor with a central nurses’ station. But the real gem of the program are the six new simulation labs with high fidelity medical manikins. As students learn to care for these patients, the manikins talk, react, scream in pain, give birth, die, and when properly treated, are resuscitated to life all under the control of teaching staff in the adjoining control booths.
