Program Overview

BRAND, offered through the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing, is not only an accelerated program but also a distance program. The program delivery allows WY’s rural and isolated hospitals and agencies to "grow their own" BSN-prepared nurses without relocating the student (or the families of the student) to Laramie. BRAND's 15-month 'summer to summer' program includes on-line learning, hybrid courses, and hands-on clinical experiences. The intensive curriculum focuses on didactic and clinical nursing education. BRAND requires a motivated, independent and self-disciplined learner.

From the UW Foundation web site: "Having a bachelor’s degree doesn’t mean you are locked into a particular field. If at some point you decide you want to become a nurse and make a difference in Wyoming’s medical field, the BRAND BSN program option will give you the needed skills to be successful."
