Traditional Track

To our high school students:

Admission to Indiana University’s Traditional BSN Program is extremely competitive. The program itself is very demanding and time-intensive, involving long hours of study as you learn the skills you need to be an outstanding nurse.

As you will see in the video below, our Traditional BSN program is also very different from other IU schools in how we admit students and in how you apply.


Description of the video:

Hello, I'm 'Chelle Filippelli. I'm a Nursing advisor for the IU Bloomington School of Nursing. The best way for students and their families to learn more about the school of nursing is to attend a virtual academic session. You can sign up for a session with the Office of Admissions, or you can also use the link on our website. During these sessions, we will go over criteria. We will go over the nursing program itself. We will cover the nursing application process and answer any questions you may have related to nursing school or even the career of Nursing. We look forward to working with you and we'll be seeing you in a session soon.

For this reason, you’ll want to sign up for one of our virtual academic sessions. At the session, we’ll go over the details of the program with you, and answer any questions you have. That way you and your family can decide, up front, whether our Traditional BSN Program is the right program for you!
