All of the College facilities are located in one convenient place. College facilities include nursing arts and science laboratories, the Peggy Wines Memorial Library, the Computer Lab, classrooms, conference rooms, and administrative and faculty offices. Student lounges, lockers, and vending machines are provided.
Equipped with over 24 Internet-connected computers, the Library is a major resource for the Helene Fuld educational experience. The Library houses a collection of books and periodicals selected to meet curriculum needs and student and faculty interests. The library's collections are supplemented by memberships in resource-sharing consortia. These partnerships are integrated into the borrowing services provided through the interlibrary loan service and serve to expand the range of materials available to students. Audiovisual and computer assisted instructional resources supplement classroom instruction, enhance learning, and provide a means of independent study and research. The Library maintains an intranet portal that provides access to the library's online catalog, course specific learning resources, electronic reference sources, online databases, and additional links to external sites of student and faculty interest. Please note that the Intranet site is only available when you are using a computer at school and are connected to our campus network. It is not available from any off campus locations.
The Library also has space for group study. For a small fee, students may copy selected pages from non-circulating materials. The Library is staffed Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. and on Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Food, drinks, and book bags are not allowed in the Library.
The Computer Lab is used for classroom instruction including information technology classes, pre-entrance testing, and other standardized testing. The computer lab/classroom has over 40 Internet-connected laptop computers.
There are three student lounges in the College; two on the 3rd floor near the Library and one on the 4th floor. Two of the lounges have vending machines and hot/cold water machines. The lounge on the 4th floor has a microwave oven.
The Nursing Arts Laboratories are available for students to practice and review clinical skills under the guidance of qualified clinical instructors. The labs are also used to demonstrate selected procedures during nursing workshops and seminars. The labs contain advanced technological resources including a computerized patient simulator for demonstration of basic and advanced assessments and acute care practices, as well as audio/video equipment, and a small library of nursing books.
The Writing Center provides resources and materials to assist students with their writing. The Writing Center Director offers group workshops on APA Style and selected writing topics each quarter. Individual tutoring is available by appointment. The Writing Center is housed in the English Department office on the 4th floor.
