Stemming from a strategic facilities campus plan RDG is assisting the University of Northern Iowa in crafting a vision for a new Nursing program to start in the Fall of 2024.

The program will facilitate experiential learning opportunities for students to learn and train in. This includes hybrid laboratories that facilitate didactic and small-group learning as well as immersive practice-based learning. Flexible simulation environments allow for a diversity of high-fidelity scenarios leading to increase outcomes by students. Storage and support spaces allow for these spaces to perform and function seamlessly. Flat-floor active learning environments support the didactic and small group learning curriculum and allow for flexibility depending on the courses being delivered. Finally, office environments support the faculty needs and functions.
