My name is Cheryl Duby and I have been working at Vermont Technical College since 2011. I currently teach in the practical nursing (PN) program, but I have also been a clinical instructor for the Associate Degree program. In addition to working for Vermont Technical College, I also work per-diem at a local hospital and for the local school district. I have experience working on a medical/surgical floor, ambulatory care unit, school nurse, and in an outpatient office. Nursing is an amazing career because we get to help patients and families, but we are also always learning. I enjoy working as a nurse and I enjoy supporting students in their journey to become nurses.
I obtained my Associates Degree of Nursing from Greenfield Community College. When I graduated with my Associated Degree I started working as a post-operative surgical nurse, but knew I loved education and wanted to pursue my Master’s Degree. I worked as a floor nurse for seven years prior to pursuing my Masters through an accelerated program. In 2016, I graduated from Walden University with my Master’s Degree. Many of the faculty at the VTC Brattleboro campus are individuals that I have worked with during my nursing career and it has been a wonderful experience working with all of them in education.
On a personal note, I have been married to my husband for 23 years, have an eight year old son and four fur babies. I enjoy spending time with my family and going on adventures. In my spare time I have also worked doing animal rescue, which I hope to begin again after I get settled into my new full time role at VTC.
