DMACC Capitol Center

​The DMACC Capitol Center provides exceptional learning facilities for DMACC students in the Nursing, Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and Early Childhood Education programs as part of the Urban Campus.

Along with traditional classroom space, much of the building is configured as patient rooms identical to a modern medical clinic. It's also the home of the DMACC Healthcare Simulation Center that features state-of-the-art, life-like, automated manikins that can be programmed to talk and display symptoms of various illnesses and conditions.​

These high-tech “patients” provide students with hands-on experience in evaluating illnesses they will encounter on the job in hospitals and clinics.

DMACC purchased the Capitol Center and remodeled it as an addition to the DMACC Urban Campus in 2013.



Several Urban Campus programs are offered at the Capitol Center
