I am curious if I can get a job in Wyoming as a new graduate since I am having such a hard time here in Colorado. I need experience! Anyways I was wondering what do I need to do to work in Wyoming? And if I need to get a license which I assume I probably need, should I do that before applying for jobs or what? Thank you for any advice you can give me :(

It was that as a new grad you had to be a WY resident. You would have to check the website (for CRMC at least) and see what the requirements are now because last I looked they resident aspect wasn't there anymore. I know that Casper will take New Grads as well.

I just was hired in Cheyenne and I didn't apply for my WY license until I knew I had the job. You can start some of the process early at minimal cost, but I waited to pay the 200 bucks until I was for sure. They just but my start date at the next 2 week rotation to give me time to do it.

I work in Casper. We take new grads. Without the hope of retention though, it may be harder. It costs a lot of money with the New grad program to train up new nurses. In the past, often it doesn't pay when a new grad gets their experience and then goes back to where they came from. But if you are looking for a great place to be a nurse, a state that is as pretty as CO but less populated, and great people- this might be a good option.
