Stefanie Wilbur


Assistant Professor of Nursing

Stefanie Wilbur began her nursing career as an LPN in the United States Army. She trained at the US Army AMEDD Center and School in San Antonio, Texas, and completed her clinical training at Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX, Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. and the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. After completing her LPN, Stefanie enrolled in Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont, to complete her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Her education was temporarily halted for an overseas deployment where she served as an ICU nurse in a Combat Support Hospital in Tikrit, Iraq. Stefanie returned home from deployment to graduate from Norwich University.

Stefanie spent the next three years working in the Emergency Department at Rutland Regional Medical Center in Rutland, Vermont. There were significant changes afoot for Stefanie and her family when they purchased a dairy farm, had their second child, and Stefanie transitioned from Emergency Nursing to Community Health Nursing.

For the next seven years, Stefanie enjoyed serving the overnight emergency needs of hospice, home care, and maternal-child patients of Addison County, Vermont. With their three young children, Stefanie and her husband operate a 40-cow organic dairy farm on 250 acres in Orwell, Vermont. These days Stefanie’s critical care nursing skills are used on cows, newborn calves, sick horses, no longer patients in the ICU. Stefanie retuned to Norwich University where she completed her Masters of Nursing in Nursing Education. She is currently working on her Doctorate of Education in Nursing Education at the American College of Education. She enjoys being a lifelong learner.

Stefanie enjoys crafts of all kinds, her gardens, skiing, and boating. Stefanie has enjoyed teaching skiing and sewing to children of all ages. Stefanie has dreamed of teaching nursing students since the first day in her LPN diploma program. She was inspired by her excellent nursing faculty, mentors and colleagues. Stefanie has most recently been teaching across the lake at North Country Community College in Ticonderoga, NY. She is excited to bring her diverse experience back to Vermont State University.
