Some dreams certainly take longer than others to materialize, but the reality is that the College of Nursing at The University of Southern Mississippi will move into a spacious, new home in the not-so-distant future.
Southern Miss faculty, staff, students and administrators were joined by state dignitaries and University supporters on Wednesday, Sept. 17 for the official groundbreaking of Asbury Hall – future home of the College of Nursing.
Flanked by the motto: “Breaking new ground, transforming health care,” Dr. Katherine Nugent, dean of the College of Nursing at Southern Miss, reflected on the winding path that led to Wednesday’s momentous occasion.
“This has been an eight-year journey,” said Nugent. “I remember being told a new building for the College of Nursing was not going to happen. People who know me also know that I’m not the most patient person. Well, here we are.”
