Whether you are just beginning your college education or want to advance your career, earning a bachelor’s degree in Nursing opens many opportunities and offers career options that are fulfilling and rewarding.
One of our longest-running programs, the Nursing program at Castleton is built on a strong foundation drawn from the liberal arts, integrated with knowledge and theories from the sciences - nursing, social, behavioral, physical, and life - and skillfully applied to the practice of nursing.
Healthcare is becoming more complex and the registered nurse has become a vital member of the interdisciplinary team. In partnership with our clinical affiliates and our expert clinical faculty, you will gain knowledge in the classroom and practice skills in the Simulation Center in preparation for the demonstration of clinical competence in real-life clinical situations.
Our Nursing program is delivered at our main campus in Castleton and at our Bennington campus. Many of our clinical affiliates offer tuition assistance for students who agree to work for them as an RN after graduation. Vermont anticipates a vast nursing shortage over the next decade which increases the potential for career choices for a Castleton nursing graduate.
