Application Process / Admission Requirements

The 2020 BSN Program application period is now closed

Applications will reopen in December 2020 for the Fall 2021 cohort.

There are two applications needed to pursue a degree in nursing.

First, you must apply to the university through the Office of Admissions. Once admitted, you will work with a pre-nursing advisor for program planning.

Second, you must complete the BSN program application process. The IU East BSN program utilizes a holistic admission review process. There are a number of factors that influence the decision of admission for an applicant. These factors include but are not limited to, GPA, TEAS scores, personal experiences, and attributes. You may view the complete BSN admissions policy at Policies.

The initial application for the BSN program is available by clicking the Apply Online button below. Your application must be submitted online within the designated application period. Contact the pre-nursing advisor for guidance on deadlines and application requirements. You must submit a completed application by February 1.
