BU opened a new additional nursing simulation lab in McCormick Center for Human Services. Made possible through contributions from Geisinger Health System and the Bloomsburg University Foundation, the new lab features six patient care mannequins, valued at more than $100,000, including advanced pediatric and infant mannequins.

Also, the website Registered, a nursing advocacy organization, has ranked BU's nursing program ninth in the state. Nursing programs were assessed on several factors that represent how well a program supports students towards licensure and beyond.
