SAGINAW, MI – Saginaw Valley State University announced an up to $2 million investment to improve its nursing simulation center and its advanced automation and technology laboratory.
Approximately $1.75 million of the funding is coming from a Michigan Enhancement Grant to support workforce and talent development projects in critical areas. SVSU will contribute $250,000 toward the project from existing reserves for capital projects.
The investments were approved during the Saginaw Valley State University Board of Control meeting on Friday, May 6. The board also approved spending $460,000 to make improvements to the network infrastructure in Pioneer Hall, Gilbertson Hall and the Health and Human Services building.
SVSU’s nursing simulation center is located in the Health and Human Service building and it includes patient care labs, an ortho rehab lab, debriefing rooms, a pediatric lab and more. The interprofessional simulations presented in the simulation center prepare future healthcare professionals to effectively collaborate to improve patient safety and patient outcomes in the clinical setting, according to SVSU.
The board also approved actions such as granting an honorary degree to Weiju Chen, director of the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University in China. According to the university, SVSU and Jinan have longstanding partnerships in the nursing field.
