Advising/Registration Nurse Educator

Advising Process

Degree Checks

  • Students in the School of Nursing utilize Degree Works (an online degree evaluation) in lieu of the Program of Study Form. Students access Degree Works through WyoWeb.

  • Degree Works is a degree/certificate progress report/advising support system that matches students' completed and current course work with their degree/certificate requirements to determine progress toward earning their degree/certificate.

  • Graduate Nursing Program staff monitor Degree Works progression and request needed exceptions (e.g. pointing of transfer courses, electives) based on individual student's program.

  • Registration for Nurse Educator students: Required ADED/ITEC courses 

    • Registration in the ADED/ITEC courses requires initially being placed on the waitlist for the course; waitlists are monitored through the Professional Studies office (307-766-2366); students are moved into courses based on eligibility/space.

    • When students attempt to register for the course, it identifies that the course is closed; students are given the option of adding themselves to the waitlist.

    • Students add themselves to the waitlist by clicking on waitlist and submitting the registration request a 2nd time; students should be sure to accept this option as it is not automatic.

    • Students monitor their enrollment status through WyoWeb on all waitlisted courses.

  • Registration Notes for All Students

    • Students who want to take NURS 5140, Pharmacotherapy for Primary Care Practitioners, should go to the"Registration: Non Degree Seeking Students" page for registration instructions. NOTE: Potential UW Nurse Practitioner students are not to take this class until admitted into the program and then must take it in sequence with their approved plan of study.

    • Due to high admittance and enrollment in the school's master's program option, the program is no longer able to admit students under non-degree seeking graduate student status into the graduate-level nursing courses with the potential exception of NURS 5140 - Pharmacotherapy for Primary Care Practitioners (see below). 

    • "W" Numbers:
      The "W" number is a student's UW student identification number. It is a randomly assigned 8-digit number preceded by a W.

    • Wyoming Student Medical Insurance:
      Each fall and spring semester students are required to make a selection through their WyoWeb account within the 'Registration Tools Channel' regarding Student Medical Insurance before they may register. Please refer to the UW Class Schedule for additional information.
