3. Approval of Prelicensure: Out-of-State Nursing Education Programs LPN/RN

Per the Administrative Rules of the WSBN, Ch 2, the RN/LPN applicant must "Graduate from a licensing board-approved RN or LPN/VN pre-licensure nursing education program" Sect 3, (b)(i). This means the WSBN will recognize graduates of out-of-state prelicensure programs so long as they are approved by another board of nursing (or similar entity). It is recommended that individuals review the program's NCLEX scores and research the approval and accreditation status and credibility of any nursing education program before enrolling. Applicants may also want to check with the board of nursing in the state where the program is located to see if there are any complaints about a program - as well as a general search online to see what others may say about the program.

Pre-licensure distance education programs seeking to operate or offer clinical placement within Wyoming must seek approval by the Board. All programs must meet all nursing educational standards defined in the WSBN Administrative Rules, Chapter 6.

4. Post-Licensure: Out-of-State Nursing Education Programs APRN/MSN/DNP

Individuals seeking licensure as an APRN should verify the program meets the criteria outlined in the WSBN Administrative Rules Chapter 2, Chapter 3, and Chapter 6.  It is recommended individuals research the approval and accreditation status and credibility of any education program before enrolling. 

The Wyoming State Board of Nursing does not have a formal approval process for post-license online distance education programs. However, educational programs wishing to provide clinical experiences in Wyoming must notify the WSBN in writing when a student will be completing a clinical experience in Wyoming.   Please refer to the Sample Cover Letter for Clinical Request below.
