IU East Master of Science in Nursing now accepting applications for May

Indiana University East’s Master of Science in Nursing program welcomes applications for its third cohort to begin May 2013. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis with priority given to applications received prior to May 1.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a special report in 2010 regarding the future of nursing. Several recommendations were made for registered nurses to engage in lifelong learning and advance their education. This includes preparing and enabling nurses to initiate and lead effective change in today’s health care arena to advance health.

“With tracks in nursing administration and nursing education, the IU East master’s in nursing enables nurses to effectively lead and advance health within their communities. We are excited to be able to offer our service area advanced education opportunities, close to home,” said Associate Dean for Nursing Graduate Programs Tonya Breymier.

The IU East Master of Science in Nursing is a six-semester program designed for nurses seeking a graduate-level nursing degree. The program offers an Indiana University degree and provides two different tracks to choose from: nursing administration or nursing education.
