Evening Nursing Program

In 2019, Tompkins Cortland Community College and Guthrie Cortland Medical Center formed a new collaborative partnership that allows both institutions to better serve the community by expanding the College's nursing program through the creation of an evening nursing program. This evening nursing program has grown and will now allow Tompkins Cortland to admit thirty new students starting in January 2024 (graduate in December 2025) and another thirty new students in January 2026 (graduate in December 2027).

The Tompkins Cortland Evening Nursing Program is a Hybrid program. Instruction will be online, in class, and clinical based (skills lab on campus & clinical at Guthrie Cortland Medical Center). Students will have in-person instruction three days a week, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 4 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Preference for this program is given to students who have completed or are currently in progress with all first year liberal arts and science courses (ENGL 101, PSYC 103, SOCI 101, BIOL 131, & BIOL 132) at the time of application.
