    Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs prepares students for licensure as a registered nurse—our pass rate is 96 percent! IUP offers both a traditional BSN and a BS in Nursing with a Licensed Practical Nurse track. Students in the LPN track have a separate curriculum that allows them to bypass the introductory nursing classes. These degrees can prepare students for graduate school or careers at hospitals, nursing homes, schools, public health agencies, and more.

    The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org). As a nurse, you’ll be expected to provide high-quality, cost-effective care for patients across all environments. However, nursing is not limited to only working directly with patients. Based on your interests and experiences at IUP, you may be recommended for a career as a systems expert, staff manager, or care coordinator. By dedicating yourself to excellence in the field of nursing, you position yourself to be recruited by a variety of institutions that place the highest value on your education.
