Nursing students in the clinical simulation laboratory

UVM Nursing alumni take jobs in a variety of settings in all areas of acute and sub-acute nursing practice. Among these are the intensive care nursery and surgical inpatient and cardiothoracic surgery units of University of Vermont Medical Center, Albany Medical Center, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Emory University Hospital, and the Visiting Nurse Association.

The baccalaureate degree provides a foundation for further study in master's and doctoral programs. Approximately 30% of our students enter graduate study upon completion of the program, in a variety of accredited programs nationwide, according to a recent exit survey.
