Additionally, a Vermont RN to BSN program is targeted at working nurses and provides flexible class schedules and online course, meaning that RNs can continue to work as they pursue their studies.

To enter an RN to BSN program in Vermont, good grades in previous training and good references from current employers are necessary. Courses focus upon increasing one’s understanding of nursing methods, skills and theories that go beyond the baseline knowledge of a Registered Nurse and require considerable critical thinking, as well as allowing for several electives in specialized topics. The program is completed once all credits are obtained with a set minimum GPA, which usually amounts to a C average but can be is sometimes higher. Registered Nurses leave the program with newfound knowledge and skills that open up a plethora of new opportunities within all fields of health care from the public to the private sphere.
