January 10, 2022 – Miami Dade College (MDC) farm campus will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new Benjamin Leon School of Nursing, Simulation and Skills Center, a state-of-the-art learning environment and training center that will prepare students to provide excellent patient care. The ceremony will take place at 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, January 26, at the Homestead Campus. Working media are welcome.
The Benjamin Leon School of Nursing, Simulation and Skills Center at the Homestead Campus is designed to prepare individuals with the evidence-based principles and skills needed to succeed in real-life clinical settings by helping them reduce error, improve safety and to improve the quality of patient care.
This 4,850 square foot facility includes a control room, two simulation rooms, two debriefing rooms, two skills wings and a health assessment wing. This supportive learning environment where our MDC nursing students will thrive can also be used for interdisciplinary collaborative efforts with the South Dade healthcare community and other health-related programs within the college. .
Students will ensure their professional competence by mastering the application of skills, clinical judgment and critical thinking in a non-threatening environment. This one-of-a-kind health training venue will provide much-needed resources and expertise to the ever-growing community of South Dade and beyond.
MDC’s Homestead Campus opened in 1985 as the College’s fifth campus with 350 students, operating out of First Baptist Church. By 1991, a modern campus located in the historic downtown business district of Homestead had been built to serve South Dade’s ever-growing student population. Over the past decade, the campus has experienced remarkable growth, earning a reputation for excellence and innovation. To learn more and to register for classes, visit www.mdc.edu/homestead.
