BRAND - "Bachelors Reach for Accelerated Nursing Degree" Program

an accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program for:
- students with a previous non-nursing baccalaureate degree
- students who desire to become a registered nurse

Program Overview

BRAND, offered through the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing in conjunction with the University of Wyoming Outreach School, 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.

IMPORTANT: BRAND application deadline now November 1

BRAND Program supports homegrown nurses

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 program will give you the needed skills to be successful."
