Alice Fitzgerald came to Indiana in 1914 to head the newly formed IU Training School for Nurses. “When I arrived in Indiana,” she recalled, “The Hospital seemed so lonely and small.”
She was talking about Long Hospital, a small but beautiful building on what was then a swampy landfill on the west side of Indianapolis. She and others at the young medical campus blazed a trail nurses and students like you tread today.
IU School of Nursing is among the largest in the U.S., has modern facilities and simulation centers, program tracks for nursing certificates to PhDs, and educates hundreds of nurses annually across Indiana and the world.
There’s a lot to discover and love at each of our campus locations at IUPUI in Indianapolis, IU Bloomington, and IU Fort Wayne. It’s not so lonely and small anymore.
