Vermont State’s Nurse Re-Entry program is a self-paced course of study designed for registered nurses or licensed practical nurses who want to renew their license and successfully transition back into a role of Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).

In addition to coursework, you will complete required clinical practice hours to achieve re-licensure.

Coursework will cover trends in nursing, the nursing process, functional health patterns, review of pharmacology, pathology and patient information.

A Vermont State application is not required for this program. Please contact Sherry Barnard, Re-entry coordinator, for assistance with eligibility and enrollment.

Program Fee: $2,000 not including books and supplies.

Student Stories

“I have learned that nursing is about accepting people for who they are and trying to help them achieve their potential. I love nursing. It has helped me be a better mother, a better wife, and a better person. I think I get as much out of caring for my patients as they do, and that feeling is tough to beat!”
