Michele is your independent advisor to help you find a Vermont BSN program that fits your needs.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Why should I get my BSN?
In Vermont it is not a requirement to have your BSN to become an RN, but many employers prefer to hire RNs with their BSN. Also, there are more job opportunites for RNs with a BSN.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Is financial aid available to get my BSN?
Yes. There are a wide variety of scholarships and aid programs for students, including part-time students returning to school to earn their BSN. Check out the resources we've gathered on the Paying for School page. Sign up to receive scholarship information, and check out our newsroom.
[fa icon="plus-square"] How long will it take to earn my BSN?
Your BSN may take two to five years to complete depending on your course load. Returning to school full-time is the fastest way to complete your BSN, but that may not be possible. There are several programs to earn your BSN part-time, taking just a few courses a year. See our Vermont Nursing Programs page to learn more.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Can I transfer my existing college credits?
Yes. Each school has their own rules on transferring credits. However, it is likely that you will be able to transfer your existing credits into a new program toward earning your BSN. Ask the school that interests you about tranferring credits.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Are classes online or at school?
The choice is up to you. You can take online only courses, traditional courses at a college or university, or hybrid courses that combine online learning and classroom time. The choice is yours.
