The celebration will continue into Saturday with on campus tours, simulation lab demonstrations.

"That's from 9 to 11 a.m. We'll have breakfast items. Many of us old school never had simulation labs. So you can come, try your hand at simulations. They'll be up and running. All the computers will be going. We'll also have student nurses giving people tours of the facility and of campus if you haven't been here in a while,” Robinia declared.
