We've organized a comprehensive list of Indiana nursing schools. Below you'll find information on specific nursing programs such as LPN certificates and ADN, BSN, and MSN degrees. You'll also find a profile of nursing education and careers in each major Indiana city.

For our 2021 rankings of ADN programs, the research team at Nursing Schools Almanac compiled an extensive database of student performance on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Aspiring registered nurses in the United States must pass this examination before they may commence practice. Thus, student performance on the NCLEX-RN exam provides an excellent benchmark for comparing the relative quality of associate’s degree programs.

For our 2021 rankings of LPN programs, the research team at Nursing Schools Almanac compiled an extensive database of student performance on the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). Aspiring practical nurses in the United States must pass this examination before they may commence practice. Thus, student performance on the NCLEX-PN exam provides an excellent benchmark for comparing the relative quality of practical nursing programs.

Public schooling offers a great education at a decent cost, but private schools usually have the advantage of smaller class size and more personalized attention. Private institutions also enjoy greater freedom in curriculum development since they are not subsidized by the state or local government. As a result, private schools often hold an innovation edge over their public counterparts, especially when it comes to nursing education.

Public schooling often doesn't receive the full credit it deserves. There's a common misperception that public institutions come up short when compared side-by-side with their private counterparts. That’s actually far from the truth. Like any private school, the public school system has an impetus to offer quality education to students. There are many excellent public education options within the nursing field.
