Although it holds the title as the least populous state in the U.S., Wyoming has plenty to offer travel nurses and other visitors looking to spend some time here. Interestingly enough, “The Equality State” gets its nickname from the historical role it played in establishing equal voting rights for women.
Famous for its beautiful landscapes and natural beauty, Wyoming is home to several national parks and monuments, including Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Devil’s Tower National Monument, and Fossil Butte National Monument. Each year these parks attract millions of visitors, and travel nurses on assignment here can spend days off exploring all of the natural wonders the state has to offer.
Qualified nurses are needed in assignments throughout Wyoming, and RNs who are eager to take their career to the Rocky Mountains can find plenty of opportunities here. From the state capital of Cheyenne to smaller cities, travel nurses just need an active Wyoming nursing license to get started.

Apply for a Wyoming Nursing License with Our Help!
Your journey to practicing in Wyoming starts with a visit to the Wyoming State Board of Nursing website. Applicants can either apply by examination (new nurse graduates) or endorsement (those who already hold an active state license).
Applicants for endorsement will need to complete the Wyoming Nursing license verification process or Wyoming nursing license lookup. If your state participates in the Nursys program, you will need to complete your verification through that agency.

Is Wyoming an NLC State?
Wyoming is part of the NLC, which allows an RN to hold one multistate license to practice in their home state and other compact states. According to the Board, initial Wyoming applications are now vetted for a multistate license. Applicants must meet uniform licensure requirements (ULRs) to be issued a multistate license, and these licenses are issued by the primary state of residence (PSOR).
If a nurse permanently relocates to another compact state, he/she must apply for a license in the new compact state. Visit the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) for more information and a map of current compact states.
