It was her passion for nursing, health and the well-being of others that brought Clarendon, Vermont native Amanda Burlett to Castleton. Previously serving as a holistic health coach and lifestyle educator, the Nursing major and Psychology minor is an active member of the campus community and a student representative for the Student Nurse Association.
“I knew that becoming a nurse would make me more rounded and I would be able to impact more lives,” said Burlett. “Nursing school has been challenging, but the challenge has prepared me to become a better nurse.”
Burlett currently works as a Wellness Nurse for Support and Services at Home and as a Community and Occupational Health Nurse for Rutland Area Visiting Nurse and Hospice. Her goal for herself after graduation is to become a certified holistic nurse and work on creating a healthier community.
While on campus Burlett has been able to gain valuable clinical experience at several local facilities including Rutland Regional Medical Center, Helen Porter Healthcare Rehabilitation Center, and Dartmouth Medical Center. Her goal after graduation is to become a certified holistic nurse and work on creating a healthier community.
“The support and encouragement makes a difference,” she said when describing the professors and faculty. “I felt the professors really care about each and every student.”
