Long Beach City College is home to a nationally-recognized nursing program offered by the Health and Technology Department. The health and technology building is three stories and was constructed circa 1969. The total enclosed area of the space that was modernized was 23,250 square feet. Prior to renovation, the outdated facility was inadequate for the college’s nursing department to teach and prepare students to work in today’s 21st century hospitals. To maximize the use of the existing spaces and provide a 21st Century learning environment—one designed for the specific needs of the Nursing and Health Technology program—the District and BCA converted all existing enclosed areas to support the new functional needs of the department.
