About the LCCC Nursing Program
Applications to the program are available the semester prior to admission and are submitted according to the application.
The nursing program has been developed in accordance with criteria established by
the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing Inc. (ACEN) with assistance
from the Wyoming State Board of Nursing (WSBN).
The program has received approval as a nursing education program by the WSBN, 130 Hobbs Ave., Suite B, Cheyenne, WY 82002, 307.777.7601 and is accredited by the ACEN, 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326, 404.975.5000.

Drug Screening and Criminal Background Checks
Acceptance into the program is conditional based upon satisfactory completion of a criminal background check and drug screening. Instructions for completion will be provided once a student is accepted into the program.
Students will also be subject to random and for cause drug screening throughout the program. Testing positive on the drug screening or evidence of tampering with a specimen will disqualify a student from participation from clinical assignment.
Certain criminal activity, as evidenced by a criminal background check, may also disqualify a student from clinical participation.
Students are advised that the inability to gain clinical education experiences can result in the inability to meet program objectives and outcomes. These circumstances may prevent acceptance into and/or continuance in the program. For more information, please see the complete Health Sciences and Wellness Division Policy (pdf) for allied health students.
