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:
  • US News & World Report Graduate School rankings for 2020 place the MSN and DNP programs #1 in the state of Indiana with the Master's program ranked in the top 50 in the nation. IUSON is the only program in Indiana to have a nationally ranked nursing specialty - Nursing Leadership in Health Systems - which was ranked 12th.
  • The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) at the IU School of Nursing is a graduate organizational and systems leadership program.
  • 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 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 an interdisciplinary team dedicated to improving the care of patients with serious and terminal illness through research, communication and collaboration.
  • The Indiana University School of Nursing Champion Center for Cancer Control research expands and strengthen the schools research and reasearch training program in cancer prevention and control.  With 14 faculty pursuing oncology research, IUSON has the largest number of oncology-intensive faculty in the country.
