Wyoming RN Programs

Individuals in Wyoming who are looking for a rewarding and challenging career should look into training to become a registered nurse. Being an RN requires time, care, and dedication, and it offers a rewarding and secure career in the healthcare industry.

There are many different colleges, universities, and nursing schools that offer the education required for becoming an RN, so potential students can pick the right one. There are even many opportunities for advancement and advanced degrees for required nurses.

Becoming an RN by Examination in Wyoming

In Wyoming, one can become licensed as an RN either by examination or endorsement. In both cases, the applicant must have completed a registered nurse education program that is approved by a state board. The exam used for licensure is the NCLEX-RN.

In order to become licensed by examination, an individual must not have committed any actions requiring disciplinary action. Once he or she has completed the education requirement, the individual must register for the NCLEX and be authorized to take the test. He or she must also submit to the board the application, fees, criminal background check, and finger print cards.

The applicant can be granted a 90 day permit with submission of an official transcript.

Why Online RN Classes?

Being a registered nurse is a great career. But many working adults who want to become an registered nurse have an extremely busy schedule - balancing a full-time job, family commitments and other personal responsibilities. The traditional classroom setting offered by most local nursing schools doesn't offer the same flexibility as taking their RN classes online.

Online nursing programs allow each student to fit their education into his or her already busy schedule. Online students can participate in discussion forums and take exams when it's convenient for them. RN nursing students can access their virtual classroom 24 hours per day / seven days per week.

Also, taking RN courses online saves students even more time, as online students don't need to commute to school. Online schools enable busy people to get an RN degree, without interfering with their current professional and personal life.
