To me, this sounds like the APRN that precepts you for clinical must have Vermont licensure, if you're doing your clinicals in VT. Most programs will consider your preceptor clinical faculty, and in a lot of cases you will have to find your own preceptors.
I would double check with the programs you're interested in and with the state BON. I don't see why your application for licensure would be rejected if the program meets national standards. There are plenty of APRNs that work in Vermont and completed their education out of state or through distance programs.
