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.
