    Believe it or not, when I went there it was the 1970's SO actually the uniforms were very very short. I mean short- not quite a mini but way shorter than skirts today! How odd is that.
    The old NYC Cornell architecture was really quite something as shown in the pic. To add to their wisdom of shutting down the nursing school, they also tore down the nurse's residence. Now where else could one get cheap housing in NYC...
    Well I hope my photobucket gave you the caps... that photobucket is finicky. And what was so funny was that I simultaneously put my cap all over the place on my Facebook.
    You mean this one?

    Looks comfy, well compared to starched pinafores and dresses, but imagine if one was a "healthy" sort of girl said uniform might have been a bit snug.

    As for skirt/dress length, have seen shorter. Indeed am told that during the "mini-skirt" fashion era there were nursing uniforms short enough that bending was impossible without flashing the world.

    Nurses residences were perhaps some of the first builings to be sold off, torn down and or put to other uses by hospitals. Makes my heart break every time I pass the former Saint Vincent's abandoned buildings in The Village. The former nurses residence is the only property with any activity, and it is being converted into apartments.

    I graduated from Ohio University College of Nursing. I remember working with a nurse once who had graduated from the Akron City Hospital I. F. School of Nursing. Her name was Donna Gadd. I imagine that was her married name.

    If I see the notation correctly, that unifrom above, is possibly New York Presbyterian-i.e. Columbia university, which still does have a nsg program. As you may know the two, Cornell and Columbia Medical centers merged years ago to form New York Presbyterian. Interestingly Cornell was way cheaper than Columbia.. probably because of the way the program was financed- and maybe becasue it is a land grant university.
    and yep-our uniforms were WAY shorter than the pic above....then we discovered the pants-suits outfits!!!

    As one researches about Cornell's program it is really a darn sham it was *allowed* to close. I mean next to John Hopkins, you guys turned out some of the greatest leaders in the profession. Damn shame. Damn shame.

    IIRC, Columbia has their advanced nursing degree programs, even a non degree BS to BSN/MSN, but their undergrad program has long been discontinued.

    Getting back to Cornell, really love the older "starched whites" and those student caps! I mean how huge they were. Sort of like having a "flying nun" coronet back there!

    Do not understand one thing though. To my knowledge Cornell University never had a Manhattan campus. So where did the nursing program's students go to earn the required credits for the BSN?

    Oh yes it did have a Manhattan campus. It was on E.71st St (previously E.68th st). My classes were on East 71st.-and occasionally in the main building in the auditorium next to the library on E 68th st. That was in the main part of the hospital. I had a Bachelor's before I got my BSN. This was mandatory at that time. Clinicals were at various places including: NY Hospital per se, Lenox Hill, Memorial Sloan Kettering (limited), VNS, and a few other sites. But mainly clinicals were at The New York Hospital.
