We've organized a comprehensive list of Wyoming nursing schools. Below you'll find information on specific nursing programs such as LPN certificates and ADN, BSN, and MSN degrees.

With the rising demand for healthcare in Wyoming (and around the U.S.), entering the nursing profession can be a strategic career decision. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment for registered nurses (RNs) will increase 19 percent over the coming decade, while employment for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) will increase 25 percent. These growth rates are much higher than average, driven by an increased emphasis on preventative care, an aging population that is healthier and living longer, and growing rates of chronic conditions.

To meet the expanding needs of our aging population, the healthcare industry is undergoing tremendous technological advancement. This drives greater demand for qualified nurses that can keep up with the rapidly changing technology landscape. As a result, many healthcare employers in Wyoming (and across the U.S.) prefer to hire nurses with a four-year degree from a college or university.

More than 30 percent of Wyoming’s population will be over the age of 60 by 2030. This illustrates the pressing need to expand the state’s healthcare workforce. Nurses form the largest group of healthcare professionals in the state, and they are in high demand. Wyoming is home to over 3,200 certified nursing assistants (CNAs), 700 licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and 4,500 registered nurses (RNs). The state’s nursing workforce will grow at a significantly faster rate than overall employment for the near future.
