“Here, we will engage hearts, we will enlighten minds, and we will teach generations of Merrimack students to empower lives — their own lives and the lives of their patients,” said President Christopher E. Hopey, Ph.D.

The Nursing Center is the final building in the North Campus Academic Development, which includes North Residential Village, Crowe Hall, the Arcidi Center, the Sanctuary Café and the Honors Program. It will have two floors of laboratories, classrooms, study space and faculty offices in 20,000 square feet. It will support a variety of health sciences programs for undergraduate and graduate students.

“I am proud today to take part in the next step in Merrimack College’s change and growth,” said Alfred J. Arcidi ’84, P’06, M’17, ’18, chairman of the College’s board of trustees and senior vice president of the multistate Whittier Health Network.

The College admits its first freshman class of nursing students in fall 2019, and the Nursing Center is expected to open in spring 2020.
