President and CEO, Finger Lakes Health

Welcome to the Finger Lakes Health College of Nursing site

As President of the College, I am pleased to welcome you. Finger Lakes Health has a long-standing commitment to being a Center for Education and the Finger Lakes College of Nursing was born of this tradition. The Finger Lakes Health College of Nursing was founded in 2008, offering an Associate’s Degree in applied science in nursing and the Surgical Technologist program added in 2014. The board of Finger Lakes Health approved and supported the development of the Finger Lakes Health College of Nursing demonstrating dedication to growing, educating, and training a healthcare workforce right here in the Finger Lakes. The health system had for over 50 years licensed practical nursing program and development of a College of Nursing was a natural next step to allow for students in the region to contribute to this most worthy profession of nursing.

We hope you will explore our program, review our curriculum and clinical rotations and recognize that the program was developed with you in mind. Our aim is to support your educational development and create a challenging and supportive program to best prepare you for professional opportunities. I look forward to meeting you.

All my best,
Jose Acevedo
