School of Nursing and Health Sciences

Prepare for a Career in Nursing with an Indiana University 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 and Health Sciences 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.
