HOW DO I GET MY WYOMING

NURSING LICENSE?

Wyoming is a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), which allows nurses to practice in other NLC states without having to obtain an additional license. If your current home state of residence is not a state that participates in the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact, applying for a Wyoming nursing license by endorsement is necessary.

If a travel nurse wants to obtain their Wyoming nursing license, they must follow these steps:

  • Visit the Wyoming State Board of Nursing’s Nursing Portal to sign up for an account, complete the application online and pay the associated fees. You will need to upload a copy of your social security card and another document that provides evidence of lawful presence in the U.S such as a U.S. passport, birth certificate or permanent resident card.
  • Verification of Licensure is required from your original state of licensure. If that license is not active you will need to submit verifications from all licenses that you hold. If the state or states participate in the NURSYS Verification system, requests can be completed on the NURSYS site. Otherwise you will need to contact their boards to determine the fee, if any, and send them the Verification of Licensure form found here and request that they complete and send it directly to the Wyoming Board of Nursing at 130 Hobbs Ave, Suite B, Cheyenne, WY 82002
  • Fingerprint and background checks are required for all applicants. Complete your fingerprints at a fingerprint service office or any law enforcement agency using the standard fingerprint cards (For FD-258) and mail in the two sets of cards to the Wyoming Board of Nursing at 130 Hobbs Ave, Suite B, Cheyenne, WY 82002.
  • Request your official transcripts from the nursing school that qualified you for your original RN license. Ask the school to send them directly to the Wyoming Board of Nursing at the Cheyenne address above.
