Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program Option

Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming


 ReNEW BSN Overview

ReNEW stands for ‘Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming’. As of 2018 all Wyoming community college nursing programs are teaching ReNEW curriculum. Students in a Wyoming Associate Degree in Nursing program are eligible to enroll in courses at the University of Wyoming to obtain their Bachelor of Science in Nursing concurrently. Students concurrently enrolled can finish with their BSN as soon as one semester post ADN graduation. Concurrent enrollment is an option, but not a requirement. ADN graduates can begin ReNEW coursework at UW at any time. All nursing coursework is offered online to accommodate ADN students attending across Wyoming.
