Vermont’s nursing schools vary significantly in the size of their student bodies. Large public institutions typically have greater student diversity and a wider range of nursing degree and certificate programs. Small private colleges offer a more intimate student experience and a focused curriculum. Both have their own merits.

Nursing school characteristics by size
Large public universities offer a diverse learning environment and a wide breadth of program offerings. Indeed, Vermont’s public colleges run the gamut of nursing programs for aspiring registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and certified nursing assistants (CNAs). On the other hand, small private institutions offer the benefit of intimacy. With a smaller student body, each student gets a larger share of attention, experience, and guidance. Private schools often focus on a core nursing program in order to provide a differentiated, high-quality education.
