Take the first step toward a rewarding career and discover your true potential with an Indiana University Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.

Whether you are a traditional student who is just beginning your nursing education—or you are a licensed registered nurse with an associate degree or nursing diploma from an NLNAC- or CCNE-accredited institution—you can take your career to the next professional level with a BSN degree from one of the nation's top nursing programs.

An IU degree in nursing will give you the personal and professional satisfaction that comes from making a real difference in the lives of sick, injured, and recovering children and adults. It will also give you the education you need to provide preventative care that helps ensure patients of all ages stay healthy and well.

A nursing career is also a great investment in your future. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that nursing jobs will grow 26 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. The prospects are even better for registered nurses with a BSN.
