JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Hinds Community College will expand its nursing and allied health programs in Jackson after agreeing to move Mississippi State extension service employees to college property in Raymond.

The Hinds County Board of Supervisors voted Sept. 2 to accept the swap.

The college will gain use of 11.5 acres and two buildings. President Clyde Muse says one building will be renovated to house classrooms. The property adjoins the college’s current nursing and allied health programs near Central Mississippi Medical Center.

The college could use the property for a surgical simulation center to help train students. Plans also call for a lodge for families of burn victims being treated at the hospital.

The 11 extension service employees will relocate to Eagle Ridge Conference Center in Raymond, possibly as early as Christmas.
