RN to BSN Completion Programs in Vermont

A brief excerpt from one of Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt, speeches voiced his stance on the critical nursing shortage in Vermont, “In rural areas we are having a very difficult time attracting the medical personnel we need.” One way this can be accomplished is by making education more accessible to registered nurses. Registered nurses with a diploma or associate’s degree nursing education living in the rural areas of Vermont can now pursue a BSN online. The AACN has commented on how much more accessible online RN to BSN programs have made higher education, especially for the rural based nurse. Working nurses in metropolitan areas of Vermont, such as Burlington can also benefit from the flexible schedule an online program offers. If an online RN to BSN program does not fit your preferences there are three schools based in Vermont that offer RN to BSN programs on campus.

The RN to BSN is a necessary step for any diploma or associate’s degree educated nurse who would like to move up the careers ladder and take on more advanced roles with more responsibilities. It is also the required education for entrance to master’s nursing degree programs that prepare students for advanced practice nursing roles as nurse practitioners, nurse educators and more.
