Our New Building

A Building Designed for Innovation

The Sinclair School of Nursing’s new 64,585-square-foot, $30 million state-of-the-art building offers a high-fidelity and immersive simulation center, advanced interactive classrooms, clinical skills and assessment labs and a dedicated research and innovation suite. The new facility will help bridge the academic partnership between our students, teaching and research faculty and MU Health Care.

Research and Innovation

  • Research and Innovation will have a dedicated suite for faculty and staff to expand our award-winning research programs that change care delivery models and outcomes.
  • The synergy between nurse scientists and practicing nurses will grow the translation of knowledge from innovation and discovery to implementation.
  • Home of the START Lab, the SSON Precision Smart Technologies and Applications for Rapid Translation Lab. A digital lab that provides our researchers clinical information about the potential health benefits of wearable consumer-grade technologies so the devices can be quickly adapted for use in clinical research.

Student Engagement

  • Evidence-based learning is proven more effective when students can engage with faculty, learn and test all in a comprehensive program.
  • Enhanced technology improves the experience for students in our hybrid graduate programs.
  • Student lounge and common area offer opportunities for group study and collaboration.
  • Natural sunlight and open courtyard elevate healthy mental health breaks for students with intense study curriculum.
