ReNEW Program

Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming

ReNEW Program Overview

ReNEW is Wyoming's shared nursing curriculum. This innovative approach to nursing education is the result of years of collaboration among our state's nurse educators, healthcare agencies, and institutions of higher learning. ReNEW is designed to prepare undergraduate students for nursing practice in an ever-changing, complex healthcare delivery environment. 

Beginning fall semester 2016, all students accepted into nursing programs at the University of Wyoming and participating Wyoming community colleges will begin their nursing education as "ReNEW students" with an ultimate goal of completing a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. Those enrolled at the community colleges, after completion of an Associate Degree in Nursing, will have the option to sit for licensure as registered nurses (RN's) prior to completion of their BSN degree.


  • ReNEW better prepares nursing students for practice in today's healthcare environment.

  • ReNEW offers a direct, yet flexible path to a BSN degree. 

  • ReNEW provides a vehicle for statewide collaboration and enhancement of nursing education and service to students.

The health of Wyoming residents will be enhanced by nurses prepared through ReNEW. For more global information about the project, please visit the State of Wyoming's ReNEW web site.
