    About College of Nursing 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's 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 fully outfitted technology classrooms ranging from 20 to 100 seats; 1 computer laboratory; several seminar rooms; a 32-room experiential learning and simulation laboratory and a 7-room suite comprising a biobehavioral laboratory and offices. 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 Research Enterprise for the College of Nursing is an 11-office suite of faculty researchers and administrators. The Biobehavioral 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.

    Building Hours:

    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.
