The University of Memphis will host an open house and ribbon-cutting for the Loewenberg
School of Nursing at the Lambuth Campus on Wednesday, Sept. 26., from 2:30 to 4:30
p.m. The ribbon-cutting will begin at 3 p.m. A reception and tours of the nursing
school will follow.
There is no charge to attend the event, which will be held at Hyde Hall on the Lambuth
Campus, located at 705 Lambuth Blvd. in Jackson, Tenn.
The first floor of Hyde Hall was completely renovated this summer to accommodate the
nursing program. In addition to regular classrooms, there are four labs with debriefing
and observation rooms, a health assessment lab, a skills lab, a 24-station computer
lab, and faculty offices. Twenty new nursing majors began the program this fall.
“The Loewenberg School has an unbroken record of providing a high quality nursing
workforce to serve the needs of the community,” said the School’s dean, Dr. Lin Zhan.
“The newly offered BSN and RN-to-BSN programs on the U of M Lambuth Campus exemplify
our commitment. The renovated Hyde Hall provides state-of-the-art simulation and skills
nursing labs and smart classrooms in support of students’ learning and faculty teaching
and will help produce graduates who can serve the needs of Jackson community.”
Others attending from the U of M will be President Shirley Raines and Dr. Linda Finch,
associate dean and director of undergraduate programs for the nursing school. They
will be joined by members of the Jackson Chamber of Commerce.
Parking for the event will be available on Maple Street.
