Croley Nursing Building
Facing a nursing shortage in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Tennessee is investing in their nursing program with a new building. As an R1 Institution, research and discovery is vitally important to the mission of the College of Nursing. The Croley Nursing Building provides larger and more functional research, simulation, and instructional spaces to support this mission.
The new building, designed in collaboration with McCarty Holsaple McCarty Inc., features four floors of traditional classroom spaces, simulation spaces, laboratories, offices, and common areas that bring the College’s education, research, and social activities together in a welcoming, modern space. Groundbreaking new research spaces like a state-of-the-art wet laboratory and an innovation lab aim to inspire the pursuit of knowledge, support nursing students who wish to pursue a graduate degree, and provide valuable hands-on experience that translates to excellence in clinical care.
