Hartnell College nursing students were thrilled when the new Nursing and Health Sciences Building by Cannon Design opened in Salinas in 2022, bringing all their classes together for the first time in the history of the program..
Along with classrooms and clinical settings, the two story building includes ample space for the more than 300 nursing, respiratory care, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and public health and science students to meet, study, and gather informally. It also encourages the building of a collaborative community.
The space is open and inviting which supports user wellbeing, harnessing the beneficial effects of natural light and taking full advantage of outside spaces for functional use as well as for the beautiful views.
