You can choose from four Indiana University School of Nursing degree tracks.
Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree track is the right choice if you are a beginning student who wants to enter the nursing profession for the first time.
The Direct Admit to the Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing is offered to incoming freshman who graduate from high school with a 3.3 or higher GPA on a 4.0 scale, have a recommendation from their school counselor, include a personal statement, and are prepared to come to IUPUC and take Anatomy and Finite Math in the fall semester and Physiology in the spring semester (unless the student has already earned credit for those courses). Direct Admit students are considered Nursing Students and are guaranteed a spot in our Traditional Nursing Program if they earn the following:
A minimum of a B in Finite, Anatomy, and Physiology
Overall IUPUC GPA of 3.0 or higher
Minimum of C in all other pre-requisite courses
Application to the BSN program is competitive and the Direct Admit option offers high achieving students a guarantee into the Nursing program (currently accepting 40 students to start each fall). The application can be found here.
RN to BSN track is designed for registered nurses (RNs) who hold an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree or a nursing diploma. It allows busy, working RNs to pursue a bachelor’s degree. If you have completed two semesters of an ASN program at Ivy Tech, you can begin working on a BSN degree with this option. The Statewide RN to BSN completion option is for registered nurses (RNs) who want an entirely distance-accessible degree program with courses that are delivered by Web-based and video technologies.
Second Degree Accelerated track is designed for students who have earned a bachelor’s degree in another field and want to become a registered nurse. The program moves quickly, 16 months of full time study, with a concept-based, cutting edge curriculum that prepares you for a nursing career.
