Join the Next Generation of Nurses

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.

March 18, 2020 coronavirus COVID-19 IU School of Nursing response

Dear Friends –
Nurses are present during the most critical times in a person’s life, providing care, comfort, and advocacy. It’s a calling to a way of life, not just a profession.

In these unprecedented times, you can count on the constancy of nursing leadership in the Indiana University School of Nursing and in the health care environment. Nurses will be part of the critical teams at the front lines caring for patients and their families, nimbly adapting teaching methods to continue educating nursing students, and putting the tools and measures in place to keep everyone safe. Nurses rise to every occasion.

The important thing now is to remain calm and clear-headed. Be sure you are getting information from reliable sources like the CDC and the Indiana Department of Health. Stay healthy by following the CDC guidelines for social distancing and employing self-care strategies. Take care of each other.

As Maya Angelou said, “Every storm runs out of rain.” No doubt this storm will leave an impact on our community in its wake, but we will be present and taking steps to help us all adapt to a new normal.

Best wishes and I’m proud to be an IU Nurse!

Robin Newhouse
Dean and Distinguished Professor
Indiana University School of Nursing

When students return from spring break we will conduct classes virtually through the end of the semester per President McRobbie’s directive on March 15th.

  • IU School of Nursing is transitioning from face-to-face clinicals to remote learning alternatives. On March 12th BSN students were asked to stop reporting to their clinical sites. Alternative clinical assignments will be provided per course.
  • Effective March 17th, MSN student clinical experiences/precepted clinicals are suspended until further notice. MSN track coordinators will follow-up with students as more information becomes available.

University-sponsored or affiliated domestic and international travel is suspended. Please continue to check for travel updates. Personal international travel is strongly discouraged given the associated risks of possibly being unable to return for some period if the situation changes. Travelers returning from countries designated Level 3 by the CDC are subject to 14-day self-quarantine off campus upon return.

Please complete the secure Traveler Information Form if you plan personal international travel over spring break.

Other than for students returning home, personal travel outside Indiana is also discouraged.
