Greensboro, NC

This first building of Union Square Campus is a remarkable partnership between Cone Health, Guilford Technical Community College, North Carolina A&T State University, and the University of North Carolina Greensboro. Leases from these institutions, combined with significant public and private investment, support the construction, equipment, and operating costs of this $34 million project, which was completed on schedule and within budget.

The collaborators worked closely together to create a state-of-the art setting to educate nurses from the associate (2 year), bachelor (4 year) through the doctoral degree level. Shared common areas, auditorium, classrooms, labs, and study areas are designed for a maximized and efficient schedule, day and night, 6-days a week.

Practicing nurses as well as local students enhance their skills in Union Square’s state-of the art simulation center, ultimately filling much-needed jobs and improving the overall delivery of health care in clinical settings.
