On Saturdays throughout the fall semester, sophomore Nursing students participated in an acute care observation experience at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Each student observed a registered nurse to learn about the nurse's role, aspects of professionalism and team-based activities in the hospital setting.

The experience provided a first look at the clinical setting and an opportunity to observe the activities and behaviors of the professional registered nurse as part of a health care team, offering insight into a nurse's responsibility and ways nurses support one another in their role.
