Nursing Nursing Vermont Tech offers a Practical Nursing (PN) certificate and an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program. These programs are offered at four locations across the state with campuses in Bennington, Brattleboro, Williston, and Randolph Center. Both programs are also offered in a distance learning format at several locations around Vermont.

The PN program extends over two semesters and one summer session. Students learn PN skills through independent study, lectures, demonstrations, and practice in a nursing arts lab.

Under instructor supervision, students also provide patient care in a variety of health care settings in neighboring health care agencies.

Upon completion of the program, PN graduates are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX for Practical Nurses. ADN program graduates are awarded an Associate of Science in Nursing and are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX for Registered Nurses. The Vermont State Board of Nursing application requests information regarding past history of substance abuse, prior felony convictions, and failure to pay child support and/or taxes for all graduates. Other states may ask similar questions.

It is the Board’s responsibility to determine eligibility to sit for the licensure examination and to issue the license to practice. For more information, please refer to http://vtprofessionals.org/opr1/nurses After licensure, PN graduates typically find employment in hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care agencies and work under the supervision of a registered nurse, physician, or dentist. With experience, they can assume increasing responsibilities in the nursing field.

The ADN program articulates with the PN program and requires two further semesters of fulltime study. The program is selective and rigorous and there is no assurance of admission from the PN program. Additionally, the twelve clinical credits earned in the PN program do not transfer to the ADN program. Vermont Tech also maintains articulation agreements with UVM for their BSN program and with Champlain College for their BS in Healthcare Management.

ADN graduates are prepared to work in a health care setting under the supervision of more experienced practitioners. With experience, they can assume increasing responsibilities and may be responsible for supervising others.

Students with a Certificate in Practical Nursing will be able to:

• employ the nursing process for selected clients to maintain, achieve, or regain their optimal level of self-care

• integrate knowledge of scientific, behavioral, and cultural principles in the care of clients in a variety of settings

• establish collaborative relationships with members of the nursing and health team

• maintain confidentiality in clinical setting and support the use of legal and ethical standards

• assume the role of a member of an interdisciplinary team

• provide care which maximizes the self-care potential of individuals across the lifespan in a variety of health care settings

• contribute to the development of a teaching plan for the client with an alteration in basic self-care needs

• assume responsibility for self-directed, goal-oriented growth

*Students who do not place into ENG 1060 or 1061 may take up to three terms to complete the English requirements (see English Requirements, page 99). This may require summer courses or additional terms.

** PN students may not enroll in spring or summer courses until after Spring2 courses are complete (see VSC enrollment consortium agreement).

Note: All BIO and NUR courses and PSY 1050 must be completed with a grade of “C” or better to continue in the program; only 35 credits from the PN program will count toward cumulative credits.

The certificate program includes 495 hours of theory and 630 hours of clinical/lab; the degree program includes 420 hours of theory and 315 hours of clinical/lab.





Any student who fails to receive a passing grade in the clinical and/or didactic portion of their final semester Nursing and/or Allied Health course is considered to have failed the program and is not eligible to participate in commencement activities.

Respiratory Therapy Respiratory Therapy Graduates of this program work to apply scientific principles to prevent, identify, and treat acute or chronic dysfunction of the cardiopulmonary system. Respiratory care includes the assessment, treatment, management, control, diagnostic evaluation, education, and care of patients with deficiencies of the cardiopulmonary system. About 75% of all respiratory therapists work in hospitals or other acute care settings. However, many therapists are employed in clinics, physicians’ offices, skilled nursing facilities The respiratory therapy program is offered in a distance learning format in several locations around Vermont in collaboration with CCV and health care providers at various locales. Under instructor supervision, students provide patient care in a variety of health care settings in Vermont and New York.

All students are required to travel to hospital sites at a distance from their local site.

Graduates are eligible to apply to take the entry-level certified respiratory therapist and advanced-level registered respiratory therapist credential examinations offered by the National Board for Respiratory Care. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care Programs.

Students with an Associate of Science in Respiratory Therapy will be able to:

• meet the respiratory care needs in the health care community and demonstrate the attitudes, skills, and knowledge relevant to their role as registered respiratory therapists

• decide whether care is needed, administer the care competently, and determine whether the care provided was in fact effective

• develop critical thinking skills, use strong communication skills, and demonstrate the leadership required of today’s respiratory therapists The normal number of credits required for a degree is 69.

Sustainable Design & Technology Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Design & Technology Graduates of this program will be prepared to work in technical fields related to their associate degree and to work with newer sustainable technologies as applications engineers, project managers, or technical staff. Sustainable Design Technology graduates will also be prepared to pursue post-baccalaureate education in business, environmental law, or related technical fields and graduates will provide businesses with highly valued employees with a blend of technical and communication skills and knowledge of business.

This is a cross-disciplinary program grounded in the belief that students who understand the fundamentals of technology, business, and the regulations that govern both can be effective agents for sustainable change. The program creates graduates committed to using technology to grow a sustainable economy, act as stewards of our environment and resources, and educate others about the benefits of a more sustainable college and community.

The +2 SDT curriculum emphasizes application of technology in service of sustainable goals and an understanding of the fundamentals of business, regulation, and permitting as well as sustainable application of technologies. The curriculum is organized into four areas: sustainability core, green technical tracks, business electives, and general education. Students select one of three technical tracks: Green Buildings, Green Sites, or Renewable Energy.

The Green Buildings track focuses on conserving energy and resources in new and renovated residential and commercial buildings without sacrificing function and design. This track includes all aspects of sustainable design, from green materials and construction to efficient selection and operation of complex mechanical systems. Students learn to evaluate building designs on the basis of natural energy efficiency standards and how to integrate renewable energy systems into buildings. Students enter this track from the Architectural & Building Engineering Technology (ABT) and Construction Management (CPM) programs.

The Green Sites track focuses upon the art of responsible, inspired design and engineering for residential, agricultural, and commercial sites in order to enhance the quality, sustainability, and integrity of our built environment. Within this track, special emphasis is placed upon the design of the landscape, including structures, planting, roads, and water systems, in order to minimize environmental impact; meet and create legislative standards; and promote an ethic of stewardship of the land and our natural resources. Students enter this track from the Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology (CET), Dairy Farm Management Technology (DFM), and Landscape Development & Ornamental Horticulture (LAH) programs.

The Renewable Energy track focuses on renewable energy technology and systems for efficient energy conversion and use. The technical curriculum includes courses in mechanical and electrical engineering that cover topics such as materials and structures; circuits and electronics;

sensors and instrumentation; and electromechanical power systems. Energy systems courses address the use of solar, wind, alternative fuels, and other renewable technologies for electricity, heating, and other power uses. Students enter this track from Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) or Mechanical Engineering Technology (MEC) programs.
