Nursing

 

Program Overview

 

Thank you for your interest in the Associate Degree Nursing Program at Central Wyoming College  (CWC). The nursing shortage continues to expand. By selecting a career in nursing, you become part of the largest professional health care occupation in the world. The program prepares graduates for careers as entry level registered nurses in a variety of health care settings. Students have the opportunity to develop nursing knowledge and skills competencies through classroom instruction, skills demonstration laboratories, high-fidelity simulation, and direct patient care clinical experiences. We maintain a low student-to-faculty ratio, thereby helping to ensure that students receive a personalized education. 

 

Once accepted to the program, the length of study is two years (four semesters). Upon completion of 76 required credits, the graduate is awarded an associate of applied science (AAS) degree in nursing and is eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). The current pass rate for CWC nursing graduates exceeds the national standard.

The Central Wyoming College Associate Degree Nursing Program is fully approved by the Wyoming State Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (formerly National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission).
