Welcome to the IU Northwest School of Nursing home page! I am Director of the School of Nursing and Associate Dean of the College of Health and Human Services. Many exciting things are occurring in the School. Importatntly, our BSN graduates’ NCLEX-RN licensure examination scores continue to rank among the highest in the state thanks to the hard work of both students and faculty.
Interprofessional education (IPE), where teams of students from professions such as Nursing, Medicine, Social Work, and Dental Education work together to more holistically meet patients’ healthcare needs remains a priority. Being part of the larger College of Health and Human Services affords us the opportunity to expand our IPE experiences.
On a very exciting note, The School of Nursing’s Master’s Degree, Family Nurse Practitioner Program is off and running at full enrollment. The program is in the process of obtaining initial accreditation through the Accrediting Commission for Education in Nursing (the normal accreditation process for new programs). Our accreditation site visit went very well, and we expect our official report in Fall 2019. Our first class will graduate in December 2019. Request more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of my commitments as Director is continuing to move the School forward in terms of visibility and reputation. One of my highest priorities is to strengthen partnerships with our area health care agencies so that together we can more effectively impact the health of our community. Again, welcome to the IU Northwest School of Nursing, and please browse our pages to learn more about us!
