UW Nursing & Health Professions Career Fair

students meet with employers in the large well-lit ballroom at UWYO

  • When is the next nursing career fair?
    Wednesday, October 16, 2019

  • Where is the career fair held?
    Union Ballroom on the University of Wyoming campus

  • How do employers register?
    Employers can register for the fair closer to the event by going to ACES (Advising/Career/Exploratory Studies Center) Job Fairs and Career Events page at

  • Do you have a career fair in the spring semester?
    No, we do not. Senior students are positioned in their capstone clinical experience for the entire spring semester, so that's why we don't have the career fair in the spring. We hold our career fair once every year in the fall semester. 

  • Questions? 
    Contact ACES if you have questions ( or 307-766-2089).


What are the opportunities presented at the fair?

The fair presents an opportunity annually for students to visit with prospective employers about the variety of health professions job options awaiting them upon graduation. The agencies involved also can be considered for potential sites for clinical practicum experiences. If a student misses the fair, they can still contact the agencies through the information noted in the Virtual Recruiting Tool that will be developed following each on-campus fair (see link below for most recent recruiting tool).

What was last year's fair like?

Link in to the school's 2018 Virtual Recruiting Tool here. Agency descriptions, job openings and contact information can be found for each employer that participated in the fair.

How does an employer register to participate in the career fair?
