Tasmanian nursing students now have the opportunity to train in exact replicas of real hospital wards following the opening of the $1.4 million nursing centre at TasTAFE’s Clarence Campus.
The new facilities will allow TasTAFE to train more nurses and help meet the high demand for health care workers.
In line with the latest industry standards, the state of the art facility includes three nursing training wards, a nurse’s station, task training rooms, classrooms and tech labs providing real life experiences for students.
The aim is to enrich learning and prepare students for future employment.
The state government says the flexible, reconfigurable training spaces were designed by Loop Architecture with construction by Fairbrother, supporting local jobs.
