The School of Nursing recognizes and embraces its urban identity and the diversity of all of its stakeholders. The School contributes to the mission of IU Northwest of fostering health and human dignity, by educating professional nurses and developing collaborative partnerships among the health science professions and the surrounding communities. Our focus is on delivering a student-centered education that prepares our graduates for evidence-based nursing practice that contributes to the health and well-being of individuals, families, and the communities we serve.
The School of Nursing has fully qualified faculty, many of whom are certified in their specialty area.
The National Licensure pass rates for graduates of the IU Northwest School of Nursing are among the highest in the state of Indiana (Click here to see pass rates).
The School of Nursing is housed in the College of Health and Human Services, which allows students to collaborate with students in other healthcare professions.
An example of such collaboration is the Inter-Professional Education project, which allows nursing students to work with medical and social work students on a combined, patient-focused project.
The School of Nursing will be beginning its Master’s Degree, Family Nurse Practitioner Program in the Fall of 2017. Applications will be online beginning November 1. For more information go to: www.iun.edu/nursing/degrees/masters-family-nurse-practitioner-program.htm. For questions please contact Dr. Linda Delunas at 219-980-6643 or [[ldelunas]].
The School of Nursing has a state-of-the-art learning laboratory, which has both mid- and high-level technology simulation equipment for practice of skills prior to actual clinical experiences.
In addition, students have supervised clinical experiences throughout Lake and Porter County as well as in the Chicago area during the program of study.
The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) projects a shortage of one million registered nurses by 2020. This escalating shortage signals a promising career in nursing.
Upon completion of the nursing program and passing of the national registered nurse licensure exam, graduates will have opportunities to practice in a variety of settings or pursue an advanced degree.
