Nursing and Instructional Building
The UNC Greensboro School of Nursing has called the Margaret C. Moore Building home since its doors opened in 1969. Thousands of proud Spartan Nurses have come through the building over the past five decades.
The School of Nursing is now preparing to move into the Nursing and Instructional Building, a 180,000-square-foot facility located only a short walk from the Moore Building on UNCG’s campus.
The $105 million building will serve as the new, state-of-the-art home of the School of Nursing, which is currently spread across four buildings on or near campus. It will also house new laboratories and classrooms for the School of Health and Human Sciences and the Departments of Biology and Chemistry.
The Nursing and Instructional Building, located on the former site of the McIver Building, will feature 39 labs, 14 classrooms, nine research suites, and a community engagement center.
UNCG celebrated the official groundbreaking of the Nursing and Instructional Building in April of 2018. The five-story building has taken shape since then.
A topping-out ceremony was held in July of 2019 to mark a milestone in the construction of the building. At the time, construction crews had used more than 1,500 tons of structural steel and 145 tons of metal decking on the project.
The Nursing and Instructional Building is scheduled to open in the spring of 2020. Welcome to our new home!
Take a look inside the building
The Nursing and Instructional Building will feature state-of-the-art simulation labs that will provide nursing students with hands-on training and prepare them for real-world scenarios that they can expect to face while working with patients.
The building also has large, open spaces and big window features that will allow plenty of natural light to enter the building. Students, faculty, and staff members will benefit from the health and wellness aspects of the building’s modern design.
