A partnership with Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3) that began back in 2022, is continuing onwards Cayuga Health says. The partnership with the school and Cayuga Health is one on training new nurses, with a majority of the nurses choosing to remain with Cayuga following their graduation.
The agreement, Cayuga Health says, will allow both institutions to continue to serve the community by expanding TC3’s 2-year nursing program into the evenings and to bring in nontraditional students working full-time jobs during the day. The expanded accessibility, classes and clinical visits will take place three nights a week from January to January.
“We are thrilled to be able to partner with Tompkins Cortland Community College by making an investment in our future that is good for both our organizations, as well as patients in the region,” said Dr. Martin Stallone, CEO of Cayuga Health. “These are unprecedented times for healthcare and the need for nurses has never been greater than it is now. We have worked closely with TC3 for many years, and we look forward to continuing to do so for the betterment of our community and the people we serve.”
