Visiting Nurse Association
An Organization is Born
In 1906, a small group of women in Burlington, VT, who were concerned about the health of the young and vulnerable of the community, decided it was time for action.
The Visiting Nurse Committee was formed, led by Miss Julia Smith. The committee convinced doctors of the value of being able to call upon a nurse to help them care for the sick in their homes. They traveled door to door, encouraging community members to support this organization.
In 1907, the first nurse was hired. Within the first month she made 85 visits, assisting local physicians with their care of the Burlington Community.
The Organization Today
Our founders in 1906 would be surprised at how big their dream has become more than 100 years later. Today, the VNA employs 600 people, serving all ages from birth through to death all over Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties. Programs and services have been added in response to community needs. However, one thing remains the same. Julia’s goal to provide care to all who turn to us in their time of need still rings true for the VNA today.
The VNA offers an outstanding benefits package for regular positions of at least 30 hours per week. This flexible package includes a 125 cafeteria plan with an optional annual benefit allowance of up to $2,500 for Health, Dental, Vision, Supplemental Coverage, tax-free flexible spending accounts and/or a cash option. New employees accrue up to 28 paid days off a year. We also offer life insurance coverage, tuition reimbursement, paid conference days, Defined Contribution Plan (401a) and matching 403B retirement plan. This, along with excellent differentials for evening, weekend, and overnight shifts, mileage reimbursement, and a great team environment make the VNA an enticing place to work.
