Memorial Hospital of Carbon County is excited to announce our recent partnership with the University of Wyoming to offer distance learning for students pursuing a nursing degree. Known as the BRAND Program (Bachelors Reach for Accelerated Nursing Degree), this unique program offers individuals who want to become a nurse and have a previous non-nursing baccalaureate degree the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing within 15 months. The program also offers Wyoming’s rural hospitals the opportunity to “grow their own” BSN prepared nurses by hosting students and providing valuable hands-on, clinical experience.
MHCC was selected as a BRAND hospital for the 2019-2020 program year. Five students will begin their curriculum September 11th and will spend three weeks at MHCC. During their clinical time, students will work one on one with a University of Wyoming Instructor and MHCC nursing staff to cover 10 hour shifts. An additional five students will be on site beginning in October and will complete November 2019.
