New nursing facility at Wallace State CC

HANCEVILLE, Ala. (WIAT) –It’s a goal built on a $25 million scale — to become the gold standard among nursing facilities in Alabama.The completion of Wallace State Community College’s state of the art nursing and biology building is now a reality.

The 115,000 sq. foot school includes nine lab rooms where students train for intensive care patients, pediatrics, obstetrics and emergency medicine.

Each room is equipped with a “patient.” The patient coughs, cries and even talks, but it’s really a high-tech manikin that helps nursing students learn from their mistakes during medical simulations that are being taped.

Students use the manikins to learn to how to perform all types of medical procedures, including child birth.

More than 2,200 students participate in the college’s healthcare programs.
