Schools offering Nursing in Wyoming

Unemployment in Wyoming is lower than the national average, at 5.8 percent in July 2011, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The U.S. Census Bureau counted more than half a million residents in 2010, and growth in the populace between 2000 and 2010 was higher than the U.S. average. Online nursing schools in Wyoming can help teach students how to take advantage of potential career opportunities tied to this population expansion.

Earning a nursing degree from Wyoming nursing schools online

Nursing isn't a one-size-fits-all career. There are different job descriptions within the field, from surgical nurse to pediatric nurse and other specializations. While some specialties, like anesthesiology nurses, require a master's degree, most career paths that lead to registered nurse and licensed practical nurse status begin with an associate degree, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree or a nursing diploma. Programs generally run from two to four years.

The University of Wyoming has various on-campus programs as well as an online master's program for aspiring nurse educators. Wyoming nursing schools online may combine some hands-on practical training with distance learning. CollegeAmerica offers online degree programs in nursing and nursing administration, as well as campus-based classes at its location in Cheyenne.

Careers for Wyoming nurses

Nursing makes up an enormous segment of the health care industry, and the BLS expects the field to grow between 2008 and 2018, adding new jobs for registered nurses nationally. The BLS outlines different job responsibilities, depending in part on one's level of education. For example, LPNs give basic bedside care such as shots, take vital statistics and keep medical records. RNs treat and educate patients, record medical histories and symptoms, and also do diagnostic tests and analyze results.

The BLS reports that RNs in the state earned a mean annual salary of $58,750 as of May 2010, compared to $39,810 for licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses.
