Students taking the RN/BSN Capstone Project course are required to have an up-to-date background check that is not over a year old from the date the course starts. If a new background check is needed, the background check must be verified by the College of Health Sciences Dean's Office prior to the first day of classes. To start a new background check, students should go online to http://www.uwyo.edu/nursing/student-forms/background-check.html. If students are unsure whether or not they need a new background check, they should check with the RN/BSN office at RN.BSN@uwyo.edu or call 307-766-3907.
