New Nursing Building

 On August 21, 2023, the LETU Nursing program welcomed the new nursing building, Winna Marie Willy Laboratories serving the School of Nursing. Dr. Steven D. Mason, The board of trustees, nursing faculty and students, faculty and staff, alumni and others attended the ribbon cutting. The renovations in the new building will pave the way for higher levels of meaningful collaboration and applicable preparation for all those pursuing their nursing vocation.





"New spaces always bring excitement, but even more meaningful to me are the student experiences that will take place here as we continue to lead the way in Christian polytechnic nursing education. New technology that allows for more “real life” simulation experiences will be a major educational upgrade for our students. The collaborative classroom furnishings and new teaching technology will be instrumental in enhancing the educational experience and creating a learning environment geared toward continuing our excellent NCLEX pass rates as students move to the Next-Gen structure."

Dr. Kimberly Quiett, Dean, School of Nursing
