Nursing Schools in Indiana - IN

Select an area of interest to find schools:

Nursing programs in Indiana have been feeling the nursing shortage crunch. The number of nursing faculty at Indiana nursing schools is limited and actually declining, resulting in nursing schools having to turn hundreds of qualified applicants away each year. With more hospitals and other health care organizations in Indiana wanting nurses with baccalaureate degrees in nursing, a large nursing shortage in the state of Indiana has developed.

With the onset of the recession, there was a changing of the tide where more nurses who were approaching retirement or in retirement decided to stay in the field or return to the field respectively. This stymied the job market a bit for newly graduated Registered Nurses in Indiana. A majority of the professional nursing organizations are warning that once the tide changes back to favor economic stability, there will again be a shortage. Potentially greater than prior to the recession. You may want to read more about becoming a Nurse in Indiana to learn more.

Online Nursing Schools in Indiana

Fortunately, there are a number of ways to pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing and avoid the impacted Indiana nursing program situation. The schools featured on this site are CCNE (Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education) accredited. The University of Phoenix School of Nursing Online is an arm of one of the largest private universities in the country and offers many nursing program options including an RN to BSN program and master’s programs in nursing education, health care management and more. These online nursing programs are not impacted like the campus based nursing programs in Indiana, which means you will be able to apply, be accepted and start classes in a reasonable amount of time. Another benefit of an online nursing program is that you will have the opportunity to complete the program at a more accelerated rate with more flexibility than other campus based nursing schools. Campus based nursing programs are also offered in the Indianapolis area.

We aim to help alleviate the impact of the nursing shortage in Indiana by making it easy to research and request information from online and campus based nursing schools in the hopes that more nurses will continue their education and career in the state of Indiana.
