The Wyoming State Board of Nursing is proposing to amend Chapters 2 - Licensure/Certification Requirements and 5 - Fees. On Monday, December 9th at 8:00 p.m. the WCAPN will be hosting a special Zoom meeting for all WCAPN membership to call in and provide tfeedback regarding the proposed WSBN proposed rules. The WCAPN board will be providing comments to the WSBN regarding these rules, and would like to hear from the membership prior to submitting comments.
The revisions in Chapter 2 are intended to remove licensure barriers for military personnel and certified nursing assistants, recognize an advanced pharmacology requirement for Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) certification exam eligibility, clarify licensure and competency requirements for nurses practicing in dual roles (ie APRN and Registered Nurse (RN)), and require advanced skill certification applicants, (i.e. Licensed Practical Nurses and Certified Nurse Assistants), to submit an application and pay a nominal fee for certification recognition.
Other changes to Chapter 2 were intended to clarify Temporary Permit language, provide retired nurses an opportunity to maintain a license, add language to comply with Senate File 0047 (2019) and to reduce barriers to licensure by changing continuing competency requirements.
The revisions in Chapter 5 are intended to add a nominal fee to cover licensure processing and recognition for advanced skill certifications.
Written comments may be submitted to WSBN by December 27, 2019.
