Have you been looking for a way to put your liberal arts or science baccalaureate degree to good use, but just can’t find a job that will be both lucrative and rewarding in today’s crowded job market? If you enjoy helping people to live happier, healthier lives, and aren’t afraid of a challenging work environment, you might be the perfect candidate for an advanced nursing degree at the University of Wyoming. Those that pursue graduate studies in nursing are most likely to land jobs at highly respected clinical and research institutions, and are usually the first to be considered for positions in management and administration.

Gov. Dave Freudenthal says the state will review job classifications for nurses on the Wyoming payroll.
Some nurses at the Wyoming State Hospital at Evanston had threatened to resign because of a new pay plan that awards certified nurse assistant supervisors a higher salary than licensed practical nurses and only $2.48 an hour less than what registered nurses earn.

CHEYENNE, Wyo., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/—The Wyoming Department of Health reports success in two key aspects of its Pay-for-Participation (P4P) program, a component of its innovative Total Health Record initiative. The results demonstrate both increased collaboration between the practitioner community and the Wyoming EqualityCare (EC) Healthy Together program, as well as improved health practices of Wyoming Medicaid members.

Aug. 6, 2009—For the past 15 months, as a student in the University of Wyoming’s Bachelors Reach for Accelerated Nursing Degree (BRAND) program, Ingrid Olson says she’s hardly had the chance to clean her house.
The homework, she admits, was sometimes overwhelming. The travel, from her home in Cody to Wyoming Medical Center (WMC) in Casper for clinical work, was treacherous and stressful during the winter months. She didn’t get to spend much time with her husband, either.
“I sound like I’m complaining, but I’m not because this program has given me such a strong foundation to build my career as a nurse,” Olson says. “If I had known what I was getting myself into, I probably would have wimped out and not done it. It was just so intense. But I really am so grateful for the experience.”

After Saturday’s double murder/suicide, Cheyenne police are looking into the possibility that Joy Hofer, the suspected killer, was suffering from a mental illness.
The Associated Press says police found what seems to have been a good bye note at the crime scene, leading detectives to believe the killings were pre-meditated and could stem from mental instability.
“The real tragedy is this doesn’t have to happen,” said Mark Walter, a Staff Psychiatrist at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. “If all the resources were in place and utilized readily, this wouldn’t be the problem that it is in Wyoming.”

The $80 million to $90 million major expansion and renovation of the Wyoming Medical Center first proposed in 2005 is still on hold.
That doesn’t mean the community hospital won’t continue to expand and improve its services, according to WMC officials.
The next step to follow the parking garage that was completed last year will be a new emergency department.
Thanks to the hospital’s savings and operating funds, WMC has $11 million to begin work on its emergency department. The $17 million renovation and expansion project will be done in six phases to up the number of ER beds from 17 to 40. The first phase will start in the fall.

CASPER - Laura Wheeler thought she had a job lined up with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
The Kalamazoo, Mich., native had just graduated from nursing school at Northern Michigan University, and through a previous internship with the renowned medical center, she received a job offer.
As the economy stumbled, the Mayo Clinic rescinded its offers to Wheeler and many other graduate nurses.
Mayo’s loss was the Wyoming Medical Center’s gain.

Wyoming Medical Center has hired 40 new nurses who have recently graduated from colleges and universities across the country.
The nurse recruiter at the hospital, Sammie Stephens, scheduled five more interviews with new nurses this week and has a stack of more than 25 applications for the hospital’s graduate nursing program to still review.
“It is the economy,” Stephens said. “This happened all of a sudden. In January, February, many hospitals decided not to hire any graduate nurses.”
