  • In normal times, the Campus Visitor Center fits a campus tour and an Admissions informative meeting around our scheduled nursing visit time(s) and will make sure you can take part in both campus and nursing tours. Admissions will contact the School of Nursing to let us know you are coming for our school visit.

  • In times that are NOT normal, as in COVID-19 or variant upticks, staff work to present a virtual option. 

Step 3

Can't come to any of the scheduled visit days?

Nursing can give you a packet that will provide vital information. In addition and if you would like, we can have nursing faculty call you to discuss the program and to answer your questions.

Email uwnursing@uwyo.edu to request a packet or faculty call.

What happens at Nursing Visits?

When you come to campus for an in-person visit, you typically will hear from an advisor with guidance on preparing for admission to the nursing program. You will also be given a printout as to the courses you would take, and what the nursing curriculum will look like in regard to clinical courses. You will be given a tour of our Clinical Simulation Center. You will be shown how we use our simulated manikens in our teaching, and will likely be given some hands-on experience during the tour.

Check out our video tour:
