New Nursing and Science Building On the Rise at Rutgers–Camden

Dozens of special guests recently got a 'behind-the-scenes' look at Rutgers University–Camden's new Nursing and Science Building.

The Nursing and Science Building is rising to serve as a world-class research and teaching facility for students and faculty in the areas of biology, chemistry, computational and integrative biology, health sciences, nursing, and physics at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels at Rutgers University–Camden.

Currently under construction, the Rutgers Nursing and Science Building is expected to be completed in spring 2017. Located at Fifth and Federal Streets in Camden, the 100,000-square-foot facility connects Rutgers University–Camden and the city’s University District with Cooper University Hospital , the Coriell Institute for Medical Research, and the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, creating an “eds and meds” corridor that will strengthen the city as a destination for cutting-edge science and health research and learning.

When complete, the building will serve more than 1,000 nursing students at the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden and will also support students in Rutgers–Camden’s Ph.D. in computational and integrative biology program and its doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program. The facility will include classrooms, computer labs, conference rooms, lecture halls, student work and study stations, and administrative offices.
