Accredited Colleges Attract New Students to the Field

Christmas in Vermont.

The nursing field has always been a solid choice, but now more than ever you have the opportunity to really seal the deal. When you choose nursing you choose a steady salary, easily navigated career ladders and a dizzying array of career specialties from which to choose.

In Vermont the nursing shortage may not be quite as severe as elsewhere, but as the population ages the state will feel the pinch. Already you have quite a few job options between the 16 hospitals and medical centers.(1) But Vermont also has quite a few long term care facilities that employ a larger percentage of nurses than they do in other areas of the country.(2)
