Our state-of-the-art facilities in Maloney Hall—including the Brown Family Clinical Learning Laboratory, the Simulation Lab, four examination rooms, and the Student Learning Commons—create a vibrant learning environment in which students study and practice. The latest technology and simulation labs empower students to put their knowledge to the test, honing various skills before using these skills on people.

The Connell School moved into our new home in 2015. Maloney Hall, our main building, features the Brown Family Clinical Learning Lab, the Simulation Lab, and an inviting lobby.
With 12 hospital beds, low-fidelity manikins, and task-training models, this 2,000-square-foot laboratory enhances our students’ training. Thanks to a generous gift from Scott Brown ’79 and his wife, Tracy Burnett Brown ‘80, Boston College parents, students can complete their classwork and practice clinical skills in a realistic environment. With greater access to experiential learning, they gain confidence and strengthen their knowledge at all levels, from foundational skill-building to advanced simulation exercises that encourage critical thinking.
As nursing simulation plays an increasingly critical role in coursework, CSON students can apply what they learn in the classroom at the Simulation Laboratory. Featuring four realistic hospital settings and the latest in clinical teaching tools—including computerized high-fidelity manikins—the lab lets instructors simulate a wide range of medical scenarios and emphasizes teamwork. Two control booths and viewing rooms, as well as two debriefing rooms help prepare students for what they can expect during their clinical rounds and throughout their careers.
Five examination rooms feature exam tables, writing desks, supply cabinets, sink/soap dispensers, and wall-mounted equipment. Students utilize these spaces for clinical assessments as well as to hone their skills for clinical practice.
The Student Learning Commons on Maloney Hall’s second floor is connected to the nursing labs. Students have access to quiet study areas and collaborative areas, including AV-equipped work rooms. The lounge also has a pantry with a microwave, lockers, and laptops and textbooks available for loan.
