Nursing program applications will be accepted beginning January 1, 2020 until midnight on March 1, 2020. All application materials are available online and must be submitted electronically. No paper applications will be accepted.

The following steps need to be completed to be considered a nursing program applicant:

  • Set up an appointment to take the TEAS Entrance Examination.  Date/times are found on our web page https://ewc.wy.edu/academic-services/majors/nursing/teas-testing-schedules/. Please call 307-624-7000 to test in Douglas and 307-532-8288 to test in Torrington. The test results must be sent to Eastern Wyoming College no later than March 1 with a minimum score of 58.7% or higher. Admission is ranked by TEAS scores plus Program GPA (please see https://ewc.wy.edu/academic-services/majors/nursing/nursing-admission-ranking/ for admission worksheet).  Students should be aware that the TEAS is a high-stakes test with average test scores from our prior cohort at 66%. Our competitive program only admits 16 students to our day cohort.
  • Students need to contact ALL prior schools/colleges to have official transcripts forwarded to the Registrar office in Torrington. Transcripts may be sent to Sue Schmidt, Registrar at 3200 West C Street, Torrington, WY, 82240. Remember that any unsealed envelope containing transcripts will NOT be considered official.
  • Students who are completing nursing program prerequisites during the spring 2020 semester, will have all mid-term grades used to calculate the GPA. A minimum GPA of 2.5 including a “C” or better in all prerequisites is an additional application requirement.

Open registration for the Spring 2020 semester will be held on the Douglas Campus on November 7, 2019 from 10 am – 2 pm. No appointment is necessary during these times.

EWC to host strategic planning listening sessions at Hulett and Sundance High Schools

Eastern Wyoming College President Lesley Travers and other EWC leaders will be at Hulett High School on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, from 3:30-5 pm and at Sundance High School on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 from 6-7:30 pm to solicit input on a strategic plan to guide Eastern Wyoming College for the next five years.

These are just two of many sessions which have been held throughout the EWC service area this fall.

“These sessions are very important for us to create a strong five-year plan that includes these outreach areas,” Travers stated.  “These meetings will help us set priorities and areas of focus that are important to people in these communities and the campuses that EWC serves. I want to be at these personally to ensure that we hear about people’s hopes and dreams for the college; whether it is a degree or employment training. We want to hear about the obstacles that surround those dreams as well as ideas on how to overcome the challenges.”

The listening sessions are in addition to discussions on the Torrington and Douglas campuses that are focused on developing a roadmap for EWC. With this input, EWC’s Cabinet will complete the initial five year plan draft with presentations of the draft to the campus communities and stakeholders in the spring. Following approval by the Board of Trustees, the plan will be implemented at the start of the 2020-2021 fiscal year. A website will be created to follow the strategic planning process.

This listening session is open to all who are interested. For more information, please contact Dr. Margaret Farley, Vice President of the Douglas Campus at 307.624.7010.
