Gordon signs nursing order

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has signed an Executive Order rescinding the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. To facilitate efforts to address the state’s nursing shortage, the Governor has also signed an Executive Order to allow working nurses time to get licensed in Wyoming.

However, the governor says there is one lingering concern – Wyoming’s shortage of healthcare workers. This shortage includes nurses, and has existed long-before COVID, and was only exacerbated by the pandemic.

Therefore, Executive Order 2022-03 “Nurse And Nursing Assistant Staffing Emergency And Temporary Relief” is effective today, and remains in effect for 60 days.” Under that order, nurses and nursing assistants licensed in other jurisdictions may provide nursing care in Wyoming in order to address the statewide emergency staffing shortage.
