Well we are finally here. The Department of. Nursing have moved into their new state of the art campus at Birley in Manchester. After 13 years of being based at Elizabeth Gaskell the pre-registration nursing team were the first to walk up the impressive Spanish steps and into their new office on the 4th floor of the building. The views are amazing and we can see the whole of the city. Now the hard work begins to unpack and ensure that everything is ready for the students return in September. There are a range if specialist teaching spaces and a state of the art simulation and clinical skills suite where students will be taught using simulation and get to use the range of new equipment we have been given to support their learning.
Staff and students will be welcomed to the building formally on the 1st October when there will be a grand opening ceremony. It has been a long time in the planning and we have been talking about the move for the last five years so it is great to be here finally.
