The NWCCD Nursing Program is an intense, 2-year course of study.  This program allows students to complete an Associate Degree in Nursing, gain RN licensure and employment, and transition seamlessly to the University of Wyoming for their senior year completion of a bachelor’s degree. The curriculum is part of the statewide nursing curriculum known as Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming (ReNEW).  ReNEW is designed as a baccalaureate curriculum with an ADN benchmark, allowing students to sit for the NCLEX-RN (licensure exam) at the completion of the fourth semester.
