Guam – TakeCare Insurance Company, Inc. has donated $100,000 to the University of Guam School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

The funds have enabled the Nursing Program to upgrade its Learning Resource Center Simulation Lab, which is a state-of-the-art facility featuring an observation room, audio and video recording for simulations, new lab equipment including wall units for oxygen and suction systems to simulate the hospital environment. This lab provides students increased opportunities to practice and learn their skills and enables the University to maintain high standards in nursing education.
