 As life expectancies lengthen and nurses retire from the workforce, the need for experienced nursing professionals continues to grow. With a degree from the IU School of Nursing, you’ll be prepared to turn your passion for helping others into your career.

Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing program will teach you to piece together evidence and information in ways that improve the lives of patients. Our focus on community service means you’ll be building a solid foundation not just on patient care, but on creating a better world. And our high-tech, modern simulation facilities and lab space will give you the hands-on training you need to be a confident, competent nurse.

Nurses help people change the way they think about health—and we’ll teach you how. At the IU School of Nursing, we create the leaders who are improving nursing in the United States and around the world.
