The Nursing Learning Laboratories space was opened in December 2016. It is a 3,000-square-foot space that houses a welcome center that provides office space for part-time nursing faculty, a desk for nursing laboratory workers, a debriefing room with a whiteboard and TV monitor, a psychomotor skills laboratory, and a simulation laboratory.
The simulation laboratory has four high-fidelity human simulators (adult, child, infant, and birthing mother). The simulation laboratory has video cameras and a video capture system for use during student simulations, which can be displayed in the debriefing room.
In 2022, a Health Assessment Laboratory was added across the hall from the Nursing Learning Laboratories. This room houses four examination tables, a conference table, a whiteboard, and TV monitor.
The Nursing Learning Laboratories at Carthage are located on the first floor of Lentz Hall.
