Virtual Tour - Nursing and Allied Health Building
The Nursing and Allied Health building is home to the Nursing Program and our Physical Therapy Assistant Program. Although allied health is the main function of this building, courses in other disciplines are often held here. The first floor houses classrooms and faculty offices.
Here you will find the student lounge where students can hang out, study, or wait in between classes. A variety of vending machines are also located here. Down the hall, there are Internet-capable classrooms and labs.
Carroll’s Nursing Program is a selective admissions program that has both spring and fall start dates. Labs are a critical part of both the LPN and RN programs. You have access to two labs: skills practice and simulation. The simulation lab has adult mannequins and infant mannequins. Another mannequin simulates birthing. Mannequins are computerized and can be programmed to simulate specific patient scenarios to help you practice and master critical nursing skills. This builds the confidence to perform and be successful with these skills in a clinical setting.
Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Lab
The PTA program is a selective admissions program. The PTA lab is the center of training for the program. Program faculty teach how to assist with patient care and give students turns “being the patient.” PTA labs have models of laundry rooms, and other areas, to rehabilitate, and to simulate real-life settings. It is critical to simulate actual patient settings to help build the required confidence and skills needed to be successful when working with patients.
