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.
[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.
