Beazley School of Nursing,
Where science and technology merge with
the art of compassion.
Welcome to the Tidewater Community College Beazley School of Nursing website. We hope that you will find the information needed to help you get started in the nursing field. The nursing program at TCC has a long history of promoting excellence in the nursing community. The program began in 1970 and graduated its first registered nurse class in 1972. Graduates from the program serve throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. The School of Nursing is physically located on the Fred W. Beazley Portsmouth campus. However, students may take general education courses at any of the four TCC campuses. Additionally, the Tidewater Community College Beazley School of Nursing program is also offered on the Eastern Shore at Eastern Shore Community College.
As a first step, we recommend that you attend a Required Program Information Session where you can learn more about the application requirements and procedures. For additional information please feel free to Contact us!
