EI C Campus Facilities
EIC has two campus locations: Belleville and Jersey City. Each campus location is comprised of one building. The Belleville building, located at 251 Washington Avenue, is a refurbished, three- floor, modern facility and contains the classroom space, equipment, instructional resources and student services required of an accredited institution. The building is approximately 25,000 square feet and houses 9 classrooms and 7 labs/computer rooms. The Jersey City campus, located at 684 Newark Avenue, is comprised of a new, three-floor building that opened in October 2013 and is furnished will the latest technology and resources appropriate to EIC programs. The building is approximately 34,000 square feet and houses seven (7) classrooms, five (5) labs/computer and eighteen (18) dental hygiene workstations.
Both campuses offer students and faculty sufficient access to desktop computers, overhead projectors, library resources, information technology and library resources and plastic models to facilitate hands-on, effective teaching and learning. Laboratories are well equipped to meet training needs, for example:
- the phlebotomy laboratories are equipped with arm models and phlebotomy supplies;
- the patient care laboratories are equipped with hospital beds and other related equipment,
- the dental hygiene laboratory is equipped with X- ray machines and patient clinical areas,
- the ultrasound laboratories are equipped with six (6) ultrasound machines at each campus, one (1) of which is a portable machine, and
- EKG machines and supplies are available for laboratory activities and tutoring.
The nursing lab is equipped with four (4) simulated hospital patient care settings, each complete with an electronic bed, over bed table and bedside stand, headwall containing a blood pressure system, suction, air/oxygen outlets, and equipment board containing otoscopes and ophthalmoscopes. The laboratory is equipped for wireless access to the campus network and is a smart classroom with a large screen and ceiling- mounted data projector. The Nursing department also has two simulation mannequins along with software components to make the mannequins fully functional. The laboratory also serves as a classroom and can accommodate 24 students.The entire third floor of the Jersey City site is devoted to the Dental Hygiene Program. The 11,300 square foot space houses a dental hygiene clinic, radiology rooms, panorex suite, a student simulator laboratory, classrooms plus faculty office spaces, storage and dental clinic reception area. The lab currently has ten student dental simulators and one instructor simulator. These simulators provide a realistic learning experience to develop the necessary motor skills and clinical knowledge. Students practice in pairs on the simulator while watching the large screen overhead video of the instructor performing a dental hygiene procedure.
The Clinical facility is equipped with computers at every station and patient monitors for oral health educational instruction. Digital radiographs can be brought up on the computer screen for treatment planning and patient education while digital patient record keeping will afford a paper-free environment.
Each campus building has a lounge available for student use. Although the lounges offer vending machine options, each campus is located in a location that affords students access to a vast array of dining and refreshment opportunities. Each campus is available through public transportation, which is important because parking is extremely limited at each of the campuses. Each of the buildings is appropriately furnished for administrative operations. Faculty and advisors have access to private areas to secure their files and other areas to meet with students to discuss sensitive material, especially when discussing items related to student privacy.
