When you're ready to apply

Remember, before applying to IU, you should contact Debbie Hrisomalos (812-855-2592, rn2bsn@indiana.edu). Debbie will need to know whether you are a newly admitted IU student, a returning student, or a transfer student. 

She will also need to know the semester in which you wish to begin our RN to BSN program (fall, spring, or summer) and will review your unofficial transcripts with you to see if you are eligible for our program.

Once you have completed your review with Debbie, you will need to submit a completed application for admission to IU, along with your official transcripts from all institutions you've attended. Upon determination that you are eligible to apply, we will send you the RN-BSN Online Degree Completion Option program application.
