Reimaging Nursing at IRSC

There’s a critical need for more nurses in Florida. According to the Florida Hospital Association, by 2035, the State will have 59,100 fewer nurses than it requires. In direct response to this workforce crisis, on Tuesday, December 14, Indian River State College will announce plans to double the number of graduates in its nursing programs and launch the construction phase of a project that moves the IRSC School of Nursing to its Pruitt Campus in Port St. Lucie by Fall 2023.

The public is invited to attend the event on IRSC’s Pruitt Campus (500 N.W. California Blvd.) at 10:00 a.m. The event site, Building G, is one of two structures slated for complete re-imagination as IRSC works with Harvard Jolly Architecture—one of the largest firms in Florida with expertise in healthcare architecture and interior design—to transform the buildings into state-of-the-art nursing classrooms and simulated clinical settings. Proctor Construction, the firm responsible for the new Advanced Workforce Training Complex and multiple IRSC renovation projects, will construct the new home for the School of Nursing.
