NURS 4985: RN-BSN Capstone is a field experience where students work with key informants and stakeholders in the community to identify a planned implementation for a focused health topic. Students learn to integrate EBP, leadership, and public health concepts to improve the health of their community.
Students can complete the nursing major courses in one (1) calendar year (fall, spring, and summer) based on course availability. However, each student's plan of study differs according to their past education. The timeline is developed for each student following admission to the program, when a transcript evaluation is completed.
Students do not need to come to Wyoming, since program courses are all online. Students may want to complete some of the general education requirements at a community college in their geographic area; however, all courses are available online through UW. All students are encouraged to attend graduation ceremonies.
Unfortunately, those courses do not meet the requirements since the community college courses are lower division courses. The School of Nursing requires upper division pathophysiology and pharmacology courses. Students should plan to take PHCY 4450 and PHCY 4470 at the University of Wyoming in order to meet the 30-hour Residency Requirement.
