The Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Vermont Tech is fully online. Students currently enrolled in the ADN program may continue directly in the BSN program if they maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA and obtain a Registered Nurse license prior to beginning NUR courses in the BSN program.
BSN students must receive a grade of C or better in all NUR courses for the course to count toward the degree. If a student receives a grade of less than a C, the student is placed on academic probation but can continue to take classes. They may retake the course once within a one-year period and are removed from probation if they receive a C or better in that course. Receiving a grade of C- or less in the same course twice or once in two separate courses is grounds for dismissal from the program. The Associate Dean of Nursing reviews such cases for mitigating circumstances and makes final decisions regarding dismissal. Please see the Nursing Student Readmission Policy in the Nursing Student Handbook.
The BSN program includes 675 hours of theory and 225 hours of precepted time that can be completed in the student’s community or work setting.
Some courses are offered as half-term classes of 7.5 weeks each.
