Nursing Students

School of Nursing

Welcome to the IU Northwest School of Nursing

Program Highlights

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.

Coming soon! Master's Degree, Family Nurse Practitioner Program

The School of Nursing has received necessary approvals to develop a Master's Degree, Family Nurse Practitioner Program. The program is being developed now, and we are preparing for initial accreditation candidacy. Please check back here periodically for updates. If you would like to be on our mailing list for information as it becomes available, please call Brenda Jenkins at 219-980-6603.

Hands-on Learning

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.

What can I do with a B.S. in Nursing?

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.
