Nanaimo News Bulletin states that the Health and Science Centre features electronic patient simulators and lab spaces that replicate critical care, home care, and emergency room care settings. A VIU release adds that the expansion to the trades complex will facilitate the equivalent of 128 full-time student spaces while meeting the needs of industries and employers in motorcycle mechanic, marine mechanic, heavy mechanical trades, and carpentry programs, including an Indigenous construction program. Nanaimo Bulletin | VIU
