We are the Vermont Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals (VFNHP), Local 5221. We represent nurses and health professionals at UVM Medical Center in Burlington, Vermont.

Our goal is to provide safe, effective, high quality healthcare to members of the community. By empowering our members to speak out and become agents of change in our working environments, we are able to achieve this goal.

Our members are not only involved in the hospital setting, but also provide hands-on care to our extended communities in times of need. We are active members in policy-making decisions with the formation of laws affecting our professional practice and the communities we serve, at the state as well as the federal level.
