The bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) is a popular degree path for Vermont’s aspiring registered nurses (RNs). Several of the state’s colleges and universities offer an accredited BSN program. A bachelor’s degree provides its students with extensive medical training and practical skills. Graduates are prepared to work in managerial and administrative positions at hospitals, medical centers, and physicians’ offices.

Overview of bachelor’s degree programs
A prelicensure BSN program lasts four years. It covers advanced coursework in the areas of pharmacology, management concepts, clinical management, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, and developmental psychology. Prelicensure students must pass the NCLEX-RN national exam before practicing. A separate BSN pathway, frequently called an RN-to-BSN program, enables existing RNs with an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) to pursue a baccalaureate degree in just two years of additional study. A BSN degree is required for many administrative positions and for admission to an advanced degree program, such as a master of science in nursing (MSN).
