Program Overview


Thank you for your interest in the Associate Degree Nursing Program at Central Wyoming College. The nursing shortage continues to expand. By selecting a career in nursing, you become part of the largest professional healthcare occupation in the world. The ADN program is designed to prepare the graduate at an entry level for a career as a registered nurse in a variety of healthcare settings. Students have the opportunity to develop nursing knowledge and skills competencies through classroom participation, skills demonstration laboratories, high-fidelity simulation, and direct patient care clinical experiences. We maintain a low student-to-faculty ratio, thereby helping to ensure students receive a personalized education.

Once accepted to the program, the length of study is two years (four semesters). Upon successful completion, the graduate is awarded an associate degree in nursing and is eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). 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.
