Alumni Spotlight: Tucson Welcomes Grads to New Campus

Nearly 500 Pima Medical Institute alumni, friends and family gathered to celebrate the newly relocated flagship campus in Tucson, Arizona. 

Graduates along with current students, staff and faculty toured the more than 75,000 square foot campus. Once Townsend Middle School, the building is now home to 12 certificate and associate degree programs in the medical career field.

One special attendee of the event was 1975 Nursing Assistant graduate Cindy Crowder Carlson. She’s been employed at Tucson Medical Center for 43 years! She says Pima Medical helped give her the start that turned into a lifelong career in the medical field. “I was only 19 when I started at Pima Medical Institute,” said Crowder Carlson. “The class sizes were small and the faculty and staff worked with me and helped me earn my degree. The school will always have a special place in my heart.”

Organized around a stunning courtyard where the official event was held, the exterior of the former school was repurposed and the interior was completely remodeled to give it a collegiate look and feel. The building now features large classrooms, spacious study areas, real-world labs and training facilities, as well as a nursing simulation lab with arena seating and multiple simulation mannequins that provide the hands-on learning environment Pima Medical is known for.

Be sure to take a look at the slide show of the event and check out all the photos here.  Are you an alum who is ready to continue your education? Take a look at our online bachelor degree programs or if you’re ready to tackle that associate degree, we can help you with that too.
