Apply to the BSN program’s Traditional track
The Traditional track of the Indiana University School of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree 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 Traditional track, you must be admitted to IU as a degree-seeking student and complete a year of pre-nursing coursework.
If you haven't yet applied to IU Fort Wayne, apply for admission.
There is no direct admission to the School of Nursing for high school students or transfer students. The first time you can apply to the BSN program is during the spring semester of your freshman year or first year IU Fort Wayne. If you are a current IU student who is considering changing your major to nursing, your first step is to contact a nursing advisor.
Admission preference for the traditional BSN program will be given to students who have completed 51% or more of the application courses on a Core campus (IU Bloomington, IU Fort Wayne, IUPUI). If additional seats are available, students who have completed fewer than 51% of their application courses at a Core campus will be considered for admission.
