Prospective students should note that effective fall 2016, nursing schools in Wyoming will undergo a major curriculum redesign with the goal of implementing a common, competency-based statewide curriculum whereby students can start at any Wyoming community college and earn an associate degree, then transfer seamlessly to the University of Wyoming and earn a BSN or higher. Nursing program admission requirements and plans of study will change significantly at that time. Please consult an academic nursing advisor prior to registering for classes since information presented here is only in effect for students applying for admission in the fall 2015 semester.
