Prepare for a Career in Nursing with an IU Degree
Nursing is one of the nation’s fastest-growing, most in-demand professions. Nurses combine their scientific knowledge with a compassionate approach as they provide a range of services from caring for critically ill patients to teaching new mothers how to care for their babies.
At the School of Nursing at IU East you can earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing in a hands-on, creative learning environment. You’ll learn crucial nursing skills in an up-to-date clinical learning laboratory using the latest technology, including SimMan, a universal patient simulator that reflects real-life clinical situations, and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). When you graduate, you’ll be prepared to practice in a wide range of nursing specialties from acute and long-term care to public health and wellness education.

Influenza Immunization Requirements
IU East School of Nursing Ready for 2012
All Indiana University East School of Nursing students are responsible for being immunized against influenza each year unless exemption has been granted as described below.
- Vaccinations can be received beginning September 1st to November 1st.
- Documentation of compliance is required annually and must be turned in to the data specialist using the Influenza Immunization form. Deadline is by November 1st at 5:00 PM.
- Deferral/exemption to immunization may be granted for medical contraindications.
- Students requesting deferral/exemption due to medical contraindications MUST provide proof of medical contraindications such as the completed Influenza Immunization form or a letter from their private physician or health care provider.
- If an exemption is granted for a permanent condition consistent with Center for Disease Control (CDC) standards and manufacturers’ safety profiles, (e.g. a history of severe allergy to chicken eggs, a history of Guillain-Barre after a previous influenza vaccination, a history of a severe reaction to a component of the flu vaccine), the exemption does NOT need to be requested each year unless vaccine technology changes to eliminate issues regarding such allergies.
- The Dean or designee will monitor immunization status of students yearly. The Dean or designee will notify students of incomplete immunization currency. Students who are not current with immunization status will not be allowed to participate in clinical activities until currency is established.
