Wyoming Nursing Education Programs

Approved Online Nursing Programs

The Wyoming State Board of Nursing (WSBN) may recognize graduates from pre-licensure nursing programs approved by other states deemed eligible to take the NCLEX. It is recommended that individuals research the approval and accreditation status and credibility of any nursing education program before enrolling.

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 Chapter 6.

Individuals seeking licensure as an APRN should contact their education program to verify the program meets the criteria outlined in 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. Students completing any clinical hours in Wyoming must hold a current RN license, even if the clinical experience does not involve direct patient care.

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 complete a registration process with the Education Committee.
