Licensure by Endorsement


Permanent License

  1. Submit an application online and pay the fee.
  2. Request verification of licensure via Nursys from your original state of licensure and the state where you are currently employed. If you still hold an active license in your exam state, only that state’s license verification is required. If these states do not participate in Nursys, you will need to contact that state’s BON and request verification be sent to the Wyoming BON via the LPN-RN Verification Form.
  3. Provide a background check with fingerprints. Instructions for fingerprinting can be found here.
  4. Request official transcripts with degree posted and date awarded to be sent directly to the Wyoming BON from the school where you graduated.

Temporary License

  1. If you wish to be issued a provisional license, please indicate this on your application. 
  2. Temporary permits are valid for 90 days and are non-renewable.
  3. Once all items have been received by the BON except the results of your background check, you may be issued a provisional license.
