Vermont Technical College offers a career ladder advancement approach for pupils to go into and progress in a nursing profession. The career ladder approach is offered in a 1+1+2 style which allows for the finishing of the Practical Nursing (PN) certificate, and then the completion of the Associate of Science in Nursing (ADN) which meets the criteria for Registered Nurse licensure, and also culminating with the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).
Vermont Tech also offers a Licensed Practical Nurse and also an RN re-entry training program. These programs are offered for Licensed Practical Nurses and RNs whose licenses have lapsed and would love to have them reinstated. The Licensed Practical Nurse and RN re-entry programs upgrade the nurse’s qualifications, enabling them eligibility to get back to a nursing role upon completion of the training program.
Locations for this training program are the following: Brattleboro, Bennington, Williston Campus, White River Junction, St. Albans, Lyndon, Newport, Springfield, and Randolph Center Campus.
