Regionals Nursing Innovation Hub

The nursing program at Miami University Regionals has focused on providing high-quality experiential learning for over 4,200 graduates since 1966. The focus on experience became more student-centered when Miami's Department of Nursing unified the Middletown and Hamilton undergraduate programs in fall 2019. Since then, nursing majors have been able to collaborate, study, and work at one central location, as opposed to three. Today, Miami's entire nursing program is housed within university hall on the Hamilton campus, a one-story facility that previously housed other academic programs in the addition to the nursing program. In order to provide Miami nursing students and faculty with the best possible environment for understanding and adapting to emerging in health care technologies -and accommodate increasing enrollment numbers-, University Hall must be reconfigured to make room for innovation.
