EL PASO - The placement of a single steel beam marked the completion of one phase of El Paso's newest nursing school, which now goes on to phase two of construction.

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center's final steel beam was placed on the $11 million Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing, completing the building's frame.

Groundbreaking for the new building was in August and it's completion is set for October.

Once completed, the 34,000-sf building will accommodate 600 nursing students. It will include 12,000 sf of simulation labs, four classrooms and collaborative learning places.

More than 110 students currently enrolled in the nursing program are taking their lessons at temporary location at 415 E. Yandell.

The new nursing building will also house new graduate and research programs for the university, said Dr. Jose Manuel de la Rosa, Vice President for Health Affairs for the school of medicine.
