Minneapolis - University of Minnesota's Nursing Program Gifted $6.65 Million

The University of Minnesota received its largest-ever gift of $6.65 million from the Bentson Foundation for a high-tech teaching laboratory in the School of Nursing.

The new gift provides $3.65 million to construct a new skills-learning environment, replacing the 25-year-old facility. The project will include acute, skilled, ambulatory and home care settings, equipped with electronic health record technology, portable computers and wireless mobile technology used in telehealth. 

The new teaching laboratory will be called the Healthy Communities Innovation Center, a School of Nursing initiative in collaboration with the university's other health sciences colleges to establish an inter-professional learning community for students and practicing professionals. With the Bentson Foundation gift, more than $6 million has been raised to date for the $7.8 million project and construction will begin in May.
