In the fall of 2014, the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Nursing will celebrate the opening of Signe Skott Cooper Hall.  The $53 million, five-story building offers the largest collaborative learning classroom complex in the country, designed to support best practices in nursing and interprofessional health education.  Classrooms will be fully interactive and integrated with wireless and wired instructional technology and outfitted with complete audio and video recording capabilities.

The state-of-the-art facility is designed to support 30 percent growth in faculty numbers, research programs, and enrollment.

At the heart of Cooper Hall is the $6 million Center for Technology-Enhanced Nursing (CTEN), an innovative instructional and research unit with four simulation environments, providing capability to simulate entire episodes of care—from clinic to hospital to home and e-health support environments.

Planning is also under way for a computer-assisted immersive virtual environment for research and developmment in consumer-facing health technologies and cutting-edge instructional technologies.

With its open, airy design, Cooper Hall is positioned to promote faculty and student interaction and collaboration.  It meets the highest current standards for green engineering and sustainability and includes a 300-seat auditorium, a coffee shop, a fireplace, multi-use rooms for exercise and wellness programs, a mile-long indoor walking path, high-tech conference rooms, dozens of research project offices, and a usable green roof on the third floor.  It will stand as one of the most innovative and advanced teaching and academic research facilities in nursing across the nation.
