About CON Facilities:
The College of Nursing activities are located in two USF Health buildings – the main building on the USF Tampa Campus has over 75,000 square feet of assignable space that supports the College academic, research and administrative missions and the CAMLS facility houses the Registered Nurse Anesthesia simulation activities in downtown Tampa.
In the main building there are 5 full outfitted technology classrooms ranging from 20 to 100 seats; 2 computer laboratories; several seminar rooms; an 8 room virtual simulation center; a 7 room bio-behavioral laboratory. All classrooms are equipped with ceiling mounted HD projector systems networked to the USF Health IT system. CAMLS offers classroom and advanced simulation opportunities to nurse anesthesia students and supports college-wide events and workshops.
Being a part of USF Health, all faculty, staff and students have access to wireless networking at both facilities; network and power connections are available at every seat. The college maintains open use computer lab hours and has designated study and lounge spaces for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a newly renovated employee lounge.
The college’s Research Center is an 8 office suite of faculty researchers and administrators. The Bio-behavioral Research Lab is home to numerous innovative federally- funded research projects that include immunology, cancer, HIV, psychoneuroimmunology, and other health related issues and includes state of the art equipment in 2,500 square feet.
The standard hours of operation are Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. During the academic session, the external doors of the building remain unlocked to 8:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 5:00 p.m. on Friday.
Access to the building other than the posted times can be granted to certified USF employees through a valid USF ID Card. Contact Jason Hepburn at 813-974-4976.
