UC Opens New Accelerated Nursing Program Site in Miramar, Florida

Miramar Florida Campus

The grand opening of UC’s new nursing site in Miramar, Florida, on September 13, 2018 was a celebration of Utica College and the nursing profession.

Miramar Mayor Wayne Messam and Florida State Senator Anitere Flores attended the celebration, along with UC’s Senior Vice President for Student Life and Enrollment Management Jeffery Gates and nursing student Vanessa De La Cruz ‘19, who performed the ribbon-cutting honors.

The Miramar facility is designed to support the expansion of UC’s regionally accredited 16-month ABSN program and is equipped with state-of-the-art nursing labs that replicate the clinical setting with anatomically correct task trainers, full-body patient simulators and contemporary hospital equipment. It also features a study area, student lounge and onsite café in the building complex.

One highlight of the ribbon-cutting ceremony: an inspiring speech from Evelyn Gonzales, Director of Clinical Workforce Development at Memorial Healthcare System, one of UC’s affiliated clinical rotation sites.

“The heart and soul of hospitals are bedside nurses,” Gonzales told the aspiring nurses. “They are the ones who wipe away the tears, who keep the patients and families informed of what is going on and, ultimately, they are the ones who are there when the others go home.”
