Stockton plans to offer more health science programs to students living in Ocean County with the expansion of its Manahawkin site earlier this year.
Stockton formally dedicated the new 7,915 square-foot expansion to Stockton University at Manahawkin on March 8. The expanded location, which will serve Stockton’s nursing students, includes a six-bed Foundations of Nursing lab, complete with simulated patients and seven physical assessment examination rooms that are outfitted to look like a professional medical office.
Through a significant donation to the University, Stockton was able to acquire additional space and complete renovations at no cost. The additional space will enable the University to extend its offerings for nursing students, and allow for a more hands-on learning experience.
