II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The scope of this project includes funding for construction, furniture, fixtures, equipment, and all related expense for a 64,698 square foot building on NSC’s 509–acre campus. Design work for this project was completed utilizing 2007 CIP legislative funding, Project Number 07-P33, in the amount of $3,302,364 and the project is ready for bidding. This facility has been designed to qualify for LEED silver-equivalency and will house NSC’s nursing program while also providing general purpose classroom, laboratory and computer laboratory space. More specifically, the current design includes six 900 gross square foot classrooms; five 1200 gross square foot classrooms; one 2400 gross square foot multipurpose room which may be divided into two classrooms; a 100 seat lecture hall; two gross anatomy laboratories; two general purpose science laboratories; a 1500 gross square foot student study area; a 49 seat computer laboratory; 28 faculty offices; a faculty lounge; three conference rooms; offices for the Dean of Nursing and executive staff; other general support space and 286 parking spaces.
Project Justification: Nevada State College continues to be the fastest growing institution within the Nevada System of Higher Education. General classroom, science laboratory and office space is, and will continue to be, a significant need for the NSC campus. NSHE/NSC currently owns only one 42,587 gross square foot academic facility for almost 3,200 students (headcount). An additional 86,172 gross square feet are currently leased, with the majority of that space located in downtown Henderson, which is over five miles away from the 509–acre campus. Campus consolidation is critical to the long-term success of the college.
Project Background Information: The state of Nevada continues to be ranked near the bottom nationally in nurse-to-population ratio. The current nursing shortage will only intensify as baby boomers age and need for health care expands. As the economy improves, many nurses who have delayed retirement will leave the workforce. By the end of spring term 2012, NSC will have graduated over 700 students from its nursing program. Without sufficient and appropriate facilities, NSC will be limited in the number of nursing graduates it can produce. This addition to the NSC campus will result in a long-term positive impact on Nevada citizens.

Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? No
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): Student enrollment at NSC is projected to increase at an average rate of 4% for the next 30 years. Current facilities are barely adequate to meet current demand, and leased facilities are located 5 miles from NSC's 509 acre campus. Without adequate and appropriate facilities, NSC will not be able to fulfill its mission of providing quality, four-year degree programs which open the door to career success and enhanced quality of life for a diverse population of students who foster the greatest opportunity - the promise of a stronger community and a better future for all of Nevada.
