12 Mar BSC moving Health Sciences back to campus
The Bismarck State College Foundation launched a campaign to bring the Bismarck State College Health Sciences programs to the main campus, training students in high-demand healthcare careers to better meet vital workforce needs.
The project is in response to a statewide healthcare workforce shortage and to give BSC Health Science programs a permanent home as the lease will soon end on the programs’ current downtown training facility.
Moving the programs to an existing, vacant facility adjacent to BSC’s main campus will bring health science programs together on BSC’s main campus in a space that can accommodate more students, complete with state-of-the-art-technology and the equipment needed to prepare for the healthcare jobs of the future. A virtual hospital will be created in the facility to allow innovation and collaboration between the programs, providing more training opportunities in Nursing, Surgical Technology, EMT/Paramedic Technology, Medical Lab Technician, and Certified Nursing Assistant programs.
The BSC Foundation has begun renovating an existing owned building adjacent to BSC’s campus for the Health Sciences facility. The location will allow for growth of the healthcare programs as well as the convenience of bringing more classes onto campus so students have better access to support services, dining services, tutoring, and more.
