From 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., there will also be a Health and Wellness Fair outside the south entrance of Jeannette Stromberg Hall, where CNM’s healthcare and community partners will provide information about special discounts and information on topics like fitness, healthy eating, wellness checks and more.

To RSVP for the event or for more information, contact Jennifer McDonald at or at 224-4673.

The first floor of Jeannette Stromberg Hall now features:
• A Surgical Technology Lab, similar to a surgery room in a hospital, with an adjacent classroom.
• Four skills labs for nursing students, each of which includes an open room with six beds as well as individual patient rooms
• Two large classrooms
• Six simulation labs, where students can treat high-tech mannequin patients as instructors observe behind a two-way mirror
• A simulated Medication Room

The second floor houses classrooms and modernized labs for the Nursing Assistant, Respiratory Therapy and Health Information Technologies programs. It also has a large conference room area with a 40-seat conference room, a 20-seat conference room and a 10-seat conference room.

The third floor contains classes and labs for the Criminal Justice, Paralegal and Judicial Studies programs, including a mock courtroom and law library. Also on the third floor is a collaborative team-based learning center and some faculty offices for the School of Math, Science & Engineering. The fourth floor of the building, the former home of the library, is now faculty and administrative offices for the School of Health, Wellness & Public Safety.

Updates to the S Building, which is connected to Jeannette Stromberg by the pedestrian bridge over Coal Ave., have included the transformation of offices into labs for medical programs such as Emergency Medical Services.

Jeannette Stromberg Hall and the S Building were under renovation for much of the past two years.

The extensive renovations to Jeannette Stromberg Hall and the S Building were done at a cost of about $22 million. The projects were made possible by a CNM Local Bond issue approved by voters in February 2011.
