Notice of Public Forum

During each regularly scheduled meeting of the Wyoming State Board of Nursing, Board members hold a public comment period to allow citizens to dialog on nursing-related issues. If you would like to speak during the public comment period, access the meeting agenda for the date and time. Time is divided equally among those who wish to speak. Board staff can present to your organization on a range of nursing-related topics, including nursing education, delegation, scope of practice, the impaired nurse, regulatory requirements, licensing, discipline processes and the Nurse Practice Act.
