Welcome to the Indiana University School of Nursing!

The Indiana University School of Nursing opened its doors in Indianapolis in 1914. Since that time, it has evolved into one of the nation's most eminent schools, as evidenced by our achievements:
  • The IU School of Nursing ranks 31st among public universities who receive funding from the National Institutes of Health.
  • Almost 40% of the baccalaureate prepared professional nurses in Indiana graduate from the IU School of Nursing each year.
  • US News & World Report Graduate School rankings place the IU School of Nursing's MSN program 23rd overall and the DNP program 24th overall.  Both programs rank 1st in the state of Indiana, in the top 20 of public universities in the nation, and in the top 25 universities in the nation.
  • The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) at the IU School of Nursing prepares advanced practice nurses to lead health systems change and graduated its first eight students in 2012.
  • The PhD in Nursing Science at the IU School of Nursing prepares advanced practice nurses to generate knowledge and shape nursing practice to meet society's need for safe, quality and compassionate care.
  • The IU School of Nursing's Citizen Diplomacy Program was selected as a Top Program by the Global Health Task Force and the U.S, Center for Citizen Diplomacy and recognized for addressing global health issues by utilizing the potential of the U.S. civilian capacity as a valuable resource.
  • The Research in Palliative and End-of-Life Communication and Training (RESPECT) Center, co-directed by two IU School of Nursing and one IU School of Medicine faculty, brings together for the first time an interdisciplinary team dedicated to improving the care of patients with serious and terminal illness through research, communication and collaboration.
  • NLN Center of Excellence in Nursing Education in two categories: Creating Environments that Promote the Pedagogical Expertise of Faculty (the school has held this designation since 2006) and Creating Environments that Advance the Science of Nursing Education. The Centers of Excellence Programs sets high standards and serves to truly distinguish and publicly recognize excellent schools. The IU School of Nursing is the first school in the history of the NLN to carry two designations.
