Nurse Re-Entry

Our Nurse Re-Entry program is a self-paced course of study intended for formerly registered nurses or licensed practical nurses whose licensure has lapsed.

This program allows you to successfully transition back into a role of Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). In addition to coursework, you will complete a number of clinical practice hours in order to achieve re-licensure.

Topics covered in the coursework include trends in nursing, the nursing process, functional health patterns, review of pharmacology, pathology and patient information.

A Vermont Tech application is not required for this program. Please contact Sherry Barnard directly for assistance with eligibility and enrollment.
