Josephine Kruse, MSN, RN

I currently hold the title of Assistant Professor of Nursing here at Vermont Tech. I began working here in 2015 after receiving my Masters in Nursing Education from New York University. I teach in both the practical nursing (PN) and associate degree (ADN) programs at the Middlebury campus. I have experience working in critical and cardiac care units, however my true love is community health. My years as a visiting nurse in Vermont taught me about the true spirit and art of nursing, and I try to bring the community perspective into the classes I teach. I enjoy teaching as much as nursing, especially the satisfaction of seeing students gain knowledge and achieve their goals. I have also been enriched by the things I learn from students, both personally and professionally. When I’m not teaching I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, working in my garden, sewing, and walking through our beautiful Vermont countryside.
