NYU opens new home for nursing, dentistry, bioengineering

New York University announced the opening March 23 of a new 11-story, 170,000-square-foot facility, which will be the new home for the NYU College of Nursing.
The building, 433 First Ave., is in the heart of the NYU health sciences corridor in Manhattan. It also expands research space for the dental college and creates room for the university’s emerging bioengineering program, according to a news release.
The facility was designed to stimulate interaction among nursing, dental and bioengineering students, and foster a new model of education, healthcare delivery and scientific partnership.
“This is a fantastic new building to advance healthcare and biomedical science,” Robert Berne, NYU’s executive vice president for health, said in the release. “In classrooms, laboratories, offices and a technology-rich learning commons, students and colleagues from across disciplines will come together to teach, to learn and to explore exciting new opportunities.”
As the new home for NYU’s College of Nursing — complete with multimedia lecture halls, a learning commons and a clinical simulation learning center — the building will bring nursing students, faculty, researchers and staff under a single roof for the first time, according to the release.
“What is most exceptional about 433 First Ave. is that, for the first time in the history of nursing at NYU, the college will be located in a building that was specifically designed with the needs of our students in mind,” Eileen Sullivan-Marx, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean of the college of nursing, said in the release. “The result is a beautiful, student-centered learning space dedicated to the advancement of nursing education, research and practice.”
The college of nursing is ranked third in research funding from the National Institutes of Health at more than $6.6 million.
The facility will provide research space for NYU’s School of Engineering to create the new Bioengineering Institute, which will focus on biological matrices, biomaterials and biotherapeutics.
