Continuing Education Program

The School of Nursing Continuing Education staff members facilitate the provision of noncredit continuing education for registered nurses and other health-related personnel. Offerings are determined on the basis of expressed needs of consumers and emerging patterns and trends in health care. Each continuing education program attempts to be responsive to the needs of the learners in regard to scheduling, time (day or evening), day of the week, and duration of instructional period. The length of each educational activity depends on the stated behavioral objectives, varying from one or two days to a semester in length, or consisting of a time interval series of programs that reinforces the application of new knowledge and skills. Courses are taught in an onsite format, by independent study, via two-way video, or on the World Wide Web. Educational offerings are taught by experts in nursing and allied health fields who are clinicians and consultants in specialized areas of health care in the state of Indiana, at the Indiana University School of Nursing, or at other universities. The continuing education program is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation as a provider of continuing nursing education. Visit our Web site at nursing.iupui.edu for complete information and registration for upcoming courses. E-mail may also be sent to censg@iupui.edu, or call (317) 274-7779.

School of Nursing Alumni Association

The Indiana University School of Nursing Alumni Association, a constituent society of the greater IU Alumni Association, was established in 1918 by members of the first IUSON graduating class. Members of this class sought to maintain their strong connection to Indiana University, the School of Nursing, and to other alumni by formally establishing the organization. Through the years, the School of Nursing Alumni Association has grown to more than 2,500 dues-paying members. It represents the interests of more than 20,000 IU School of Nursing graduates worldwide. The 30-member Nursing Alumni Association Board of Directors, a group made up of nursing graduates from every School of Nursing campus, serves as the governing body for the organization. It works to implement a variety of service, professional, and social activities each year. Some of these events include local and regional alumni receptions, alumni service awards, student scholarships, class reunions, and continuing education programs. In addition, the association works to promote the general interests of the School of Nursing, the university, and the nursing profession.
