Out-Of-State Nursing Education Programs

Pre-Licensure Programs (RN/LPN Programs)

Student Information: The Wyoming State Board of Nursing (WSBN) recognizes graduates from pre-licensure nursing programs that are approved by other states/jurisdictions as eligible to take the NCLEX and apply for licensure in Wyoming. Out-of-state nursing education programs can be contacted directly for information and specific questions about the program and the program's approval/accreditation status in their state. It is recommended that individuals research the approval/accreditation status and credibility of any nursing education program before enrolling.

Educational Program Information: The WSBN provides approval for pre-licensure distance education programs seeking to operate within Wyoming see 
Pre-Licensure Distance Nursing Education Program Approval Instructions (found under Education tab).

Student Information:
Individuals seeking recognition as an APRN (e.g., nurse practitioner), should contact their education program to make sure the program meets the criteria outlined in 
The Administrative Rules and Regulations of the Wyoming State Board of Nursing, Chapter 2, Section 2, (a).  It is recommended that individuals research the approval/accreditation status and credibility of any nursing education program before enrolling.
