Vermont Nursing Schools and Programs
Vermont, the Green Mountain state, is the place to simply stand and breath in the beauty of outdoors and nature. Or take advantage of natureâ€™s resources: skiing or snow tubing on the frosted mountains; hiking, biking, fishing, or paddling through the cool forests; playing a round of golf on smoothly cultivated hillsides. In winter, Vermont is the mecca for skiing on the east coast at a number of mountains. Adventures for families include a wonderful range of outdoor fun in the lakes and mountains, nature, art, and history museums, and visits to hospitable farms.
Vermont provides limited facilities to earn a nursing degree, but their schools offer a wide range of degree opportunities. The University of Vermont in Burlington offers the BSN, an MSN in five different specialties. Due to the rapidly expanding and evolving nature of the health care system, careers in nursing are expected to continue to grow significantly over the next decade.

Four-year colleges and universities offer comprehensive nursing programs; while tech schools and community colleges can help you get specific certifications.

This valuable experience will help prepare nursing students and gives them important networking opportunities.
Nurses in hospitals, community health centers, group practices, long term care facilities, and elsewhere in the health care community, are being called upon to lead and manage departments within their organizations. In addition, they are being asked to as become educators, not only for the patients, but for the future nurses of their communities.
