Contributing to the "eds and meds" corridor of the city, Rutgers-Camden officially opened its 107,000-square-foot Nursing and Science building on Monday.

The $62.5 million building will act as both a teaching and research facility for nursing and science students at the school.

“This building represents Rutgers’ first bold step in forging an ‘eds and meds’ corridor that moves us closer toward our vision of a city where innovation in health care and bioscience commands the imagination of the world,” Rutgers-Camden Chancellor Phoebe Haddon said in a release put out by the university.

The "eds and meds" corridor is meant to connect Rutgers-Camden’s original campus with the local neighborhood that includes Cooper University Hospital, Coriell Institute for Medical Research and Cooper Medical School of Rowan.

The new nursing building offers a Simulation Lab and a Basic Clinical Competencies Lab that offer students access to modern equipment found in hospitals, allowing them the opportunity to develop skills in a realistic environment.
