Nursing Admission Application
Applicants must meet the general admission requirements of Central Wyoming College. Application to the college and application to the Nursing Program are separate objective processes and both must be completed. Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to the Nursing Program.
Admission to the Nursing Program is competitive. Each year 32 students are selected to enter the program on the main campus in Riverton, and 8 students are selected for the program at a distant site in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The nursing application deadline is March 1 for admission in the fall semester. Late applications will not be reviewed. Once the application is submitted, it is the applicant's responsibility to contact the Nursing office at the college to confirm receipt.
Applicants must take the TEAS V as part of the application process.
Students wishing an evaluation of previous collegiate work for transfer of credit must make arrangements for official transcripts from institutions attended to be sent to the Records office at CWC prior to the March 1 application deadline.
All applicants are notified of Nursing Admission Committee decisions in writing approximately six weeks after the March 1 application deadline. Applicants will either receive a letter of acceptance, an offer for placement on the alternate list, or a letter of non acceptance. Students placed on the alternate list will be notified should an opening occur.
An applicant who is notified of acceptance must return the Acceptance Reply form in order to reserve a position in the class. If an accepted applicant decides to withdraw their application, notification of the withdrawal must be received by the Nursing office. Failure to notify the Nursing office of intent to withdraw application could affect future consideration for admission.
Students who are not accepted to the program but are interested in re-applying must complete the Nursing Admission Application prior to the March 1 deadline each year and submit official college transcripts reflecting coursework completed since the last application, if applicable.
