About Nursing

Celebrating 100+ years of nursing education

Founded in 1914, the Indiana University School of Nursing has grown into one of the largest nursing schools in the country. The Bloomington, IUPUI, and Fort Wayne campuses operate as a single administrative unit, known as the core school, to offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs.

The Fort Wayne campus currently offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program with two tracks: traditional and RN to BSN.
