NWACC - Center for Health Professions
The Northwest Arkansas Community College’s Center for Health Professions houses nursing, physical and occupational therapy, and allied professions. The facility provides much needed office space for the instructors and staff as well as new classrooms. Student gathering areas provide space where students and instructors can interact with one another in a relaxed and informal setting. Major classrooms can be grouped to accommodate large groups and presentations by opening movable walls. Within the facility is technology that records students as they perform the duties expected of them in a hospital setting. Bringing students even closer to real-world experiences is an EMT classroom lab equipped with an ambulance simulator. Using sustainable materials and site design helped this project achieve LEED® silver certification.
