The title of registered nurse is reserved for those who have taken and passed the NCLEX-RN, the licensure exam for qualified bachelor of science in nursing degree (BSN) and associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) holders. All of these nurses are in high demand in Indiana as well as across the United States, but the most sought-after by employers are registered nurses with BSN degrees, since they have completed four years of college education.

Graduates of an ADN program are also referred to as registered nurses after passing the NCLEX-RN exam, but they typically earn a lower salary than BSN graduates since ADN programs only last two years. As a result, many RNs with ADN certificates eventually choose to return to school to earn a BSN degree. In Indiana, the annual salary of RNs, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, ranges from $49,790 to $71,800, with BSN holders earning salaries in the upper range.

Indiana State University and Valparaiso University are just two of the many schools in Indiana that offer BSN programs. Since more and more registered nurses with ADN degrees aspire to finish a full-term BSN, many nursing schools are adopting more flexible, less expensive, and shorter RN-to-BSN programs with greater emphasis on clinical experience.

Indiana is home to the following list of accredited nursing schools with programs designed to meet the needs of aspiring registered nurses.
