Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College

Advancing to top-tier status among Nursing Schools

Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College

St. Louis, Missouri

Replacing the outdated facilities of the Barnes-Jewish College of Nursing (their first new building in 80 years) was imperative to achieving specific goals: advancing the college’s ranking to the top tier of nursing schools nationwide; attracting prominent faculty; and enhancing skills training to meet the highest clinical practice standards. In designing the new building, it was important to provide a prominent image for the Goldfarb School of Nursing within the Washington University/Barnes-Jewish Hospital medical complex. The 105,000 sf building contains classrooms, auditoriums, student gathering areas, clinical skills and research labs, and faculty offices. Six simulation labs feature the latest in hospital technology so that teaching reflects real-world hospital experience. Integrating this technology with the structure and HVAC within the diverse educational spaces required an innovative and collaborative design approach.

Size: 105,000 sf
Status: Completion 2007
Associate Architect: Ayers/Saint/Gross
Award:
2007 Construction Industry Best Practice Award, Honorable Mention, St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers

The use of simulated patient rooms, videoconferencing capabilities and spacious clinical labs allow the educators to create real experiences. Because our students receive exceptional clinical experience, both at the college and at the hospitals, they are highly sought after in the job market.
