Academics

Shaping the future of nursing

At Indiana University School of Nursing, our groundbreaking academic programs combine innovative teaching and research with countless opportunities for simulated and real-world experience. Our graduates are evidence-based decision-makers, effective communicators, competent care providers, and leading-edge researchers with a holistic, culturally sensitive view of the communities they serve and the changing heathcare landscape.

On the graduate level, we are a leader in distance-accessible learning, making it possible to take your next step from anywhere in the state of Indiana. Our RN to BSN program gives working RNs a pathway to the BSN that fits into their busy lives.

I didn’t realize I was going to learn so many skills so quickly. IUSON has been invaluable in teaching us the foundational pieces of nursing and giving us incredible opportunities.

Our students gain a wide perspective

An international view of nursing

Understanding how different countries and cultures approach healthcare is more relevant than ever. Strategic international partnerships and service learning programs, as well as chances for students to study abroad or learn from visiting international scholars make us a community with a growing global understanding of what nursing is and can become.

An active voice in health policy

When health policy decisions are made, nurses deserve to have seat at the table. Clinical Associate Professor Sharron Crowder, PhD, champions academic and real-world experiential learning opportunities in leadership and advocacy for our graduate students.
