The Indiana East School of Nursing and Health Sciences has been granted continuing accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) through spring 2025 for its baccalaureate programs.
The ACEN visited the campus for its site review on February 8, 2017. At its meeting this summer, the ACEN Board of Commissioners determined that the school is in compliance with all accreditation standards.
The school’s updated mission is to create a community of learning that addresses society’s need for knowledgeable, competent, and caring nursing, advance practice nursing, and health care professionals while nurturing students, faculty, and staff.
Currently, the School of Nursing and Health Services offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing on campus and an R.N. to B.S.N. Mobility Option available to students at IU East and off-campus sites in Madison, Lawrenceburg, and Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. A consortium agreement with other IU Schools of Nursing also provides an online option for the completion of the R.N. to B.S.N. Mobility Option. The most recent degree, the online Bachelor of Applied Health Sciences, began this fall. The online degree is in collaboration with IU regional campuses and IU Online.
The school also offers a Master of Science in Nursing program with three track options: family nurse practitioner, nursing education and nursing administration. The graduate program is also accredited by the ACEN.
