In anticipation for the opening of the school year, Lorma Colleges opened to the public its newly constructed four storey building located in Lorma Carlatan campus last March 28, 2011. Equipped with several spacious classrooms, a bookstore and lavatories, the building also holds the College of Nursing’s newest Nursing Arts Center.
Students will have a simulated nursing training and return demonstrations in these rooms which include the Delivery room, Nursery, Operating Room, Emergency Room, Orthopedics, Private Rooms and a Nurse’s station. These hospital-designed rooms were specifically structured to emphasize the related learning experiences of the student in actual medical settings.
OIC Commission on Higher Education Region I Dr. Caridad Abuan and Mrs. Gena Ignacio, Member of the Board of Directors of Lorma Inc., graced the event and cut the ceremonial ribbon while Lorma chaplain Rev. Brennus Paragas headed the blessing of the new building.
Lorma Incorporated President Dr. Rufino Macagba Jr., Executive Vice President Mr. Robert Kaiser, Executive Director Dr. Jose Mainggang and College of Nursing Dean Mrs. Ludivina Magpali expressed jovial messages over the college’s collective effort in the realization of the Lorma Nursing Arts Building.
TESDA Provincial Director Marissa Alcantara, DepEd La Union Division Superintendent Dr. Edna Leal and Dr. Abuan remarked about the impressive feats the college is making to maintain quality education and more specifically noted admiration to the new skills laboratories.
Lorma Medical Center Medical Director Dr. Mario Bautista and Chief Nurse Mrs. Ofelia Pulido as well as the different department heads and deans of Lorma Colleges were also in attendance.
An open house and tour of the various areas and sections in the Nursing Arts building were done alongside students, faculty members and deans in the academic community. Likewise, some nursing students in their clinical uniforms and scrub suits served as the models for the different areas of the laboratory. Schools who participated included Christ the King College – High School, Bacnotan National High School, Sto. Rosario National High School, Lorma Colleges Special Sciences High School and Don Eulogio de Guzman Memorial National High School.
The continuous expansion of the college’s structure is a response to the growing number of its enrollees in various courses such as Nursing, Physical Therapy, Radiologic Technology, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Health Services and Management, Business Administration and Management, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Education as well as Computer Engineering and Information Technology Related Courses.
