The Traditional track of the Indiana University School of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is a pre-licensure track for those who don’t have a bachelor’s degree in any field or any prior nursing education. It requires four years of full-time study.
Eligibility to apply
To be eligible to apply to the BSN program’s Traditional track, you must be admitted to IU Bloomington as a degree-seeking student and complete between 28 and 31 credits of pre-nursing coursework, including all courses required for admission to the School of Nursing.
If you are a current IU student who is considering changing your major to nursing, please choose one of the two actions below based on your current program.
- If currently part of University Division, please contact your current advisor or email UDIVHELP@indiana.edu.
- If you are in another program or school, please contact the Center for Students in Transition (SIT). You will do this by completing their brief intake survey. The advisors in SIT review the submitted forms and will help you get connected with the appropriate advisor and discuss your next steps.
Applicants who list the majority of their credit hours (or five courses) from IUB, IUFW, or IUPUI will be given priority consideration for admission. In recent years, students from IUB and IUPUI have filled all seats in the BSN program on the IU Bloomington and IUPUI campuses.
