Overview
Nursing Nursing

Applications are accepted each spring. Contact our office for additional information.
Western Wyoming Community College offers a program leading to an Associate Degree in Nursing. Successful completion of the program allows the graduate to take the National Council Licensure examination for registered nursing (NCLEX-RN). Upon licensure, the AD nurse practices in settings where policies and procedures are specified and guidance is available.

Western's Associate Degree Nursing Program provides an innovative, high quality nursing program using active learning. Interactive learning experiences using realistic case scenarios enable students to see the whole patient. There are no traditional lectures. In addition to learning nursing theory, students learn to be productive in a group, develop teamwork and interpersonal communication skills, and to evaluate their own performance. All of these skills are essential in the workplace.
