  • The Margaret H. Rollins School Nursing will break ground on its $10 million building on Dec. 14.
    The event will begin at 1 p.m. at Beebe Healthcare, 424 Savannah Road, Lewes. School officials are inviting residents, visitors and local dignitaries to attend this special groundbreaking ceremony, which will be held in front of the school’s Market Street entrance.
    Jeffrey Fried, Beebe Healthcare President and CEO, will talk about the importance of expanding educational opportunities for the region’s students. The expanded school will include two six-bed skills laboratories and two one-bed skills laboratories outfitted like modern hospital rooms. The one-bed skills labs will include patient simulators, replicas of patients complete with real physiological responses that allow students to practice clinical scenarios in a laboratory setting and gain confidence in their skills.
    When the project is complete, 60 new nurses will be eligible each year to take the licensure exam.
    The grand opening of the new building is planned for 2015.
    A reception will immediately follow the event at the Inn at Canal Square, 122 W. Market St., Lewes.
