#1 In Nursing

Did you know that Ivy Tech graduates the highest number of associates-level nurses in the nation? It’s true! We offer a variety of degree options that prepare you for the licensing exams to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), or a Registered Nurse (RN). Check out our degree options below.

Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN)

  • The Traditional Track of the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree program is designed for individuals with no previous nursing education or licensure.

    Preparation for the NCLEX-RN Exam

    The ASN Traditional Track prepares students for the NCLEX-RN exam, which is the exam taken to secure licensing as a Registered Nurse (RN). Graduates who successfully pass the NCLEX-RN exam have opportunities to obtain entry-level nursing positions in a variety of healthcare areas, including hospitals, nursing and residential care facilities, home health care, physician offices, schools, and health departments.

    Once admitted to the program, an Associate of Science in Nursing degree can be achieved in 4 semesters, or about two years.

    Transfer as a Junior

    Graduates of the ASN Traditional Track can also choose to transfer to a four-year college or university where they can earn an RN to BSN bachelor’s degree or an RN to MSN master’s degree in nursing. The ASN Traditional Track is designated as a TSAP program (which stands for “Transfer Single Articulation Pathway”), which enables students to transfer to Indiana public four-year institutions with automatic junior status. You can save upward of $10,000 by completing your first two years at Ivy Tech and then transferring to a four-year college. Our nursing program has partnerships with more than two dozen four-year universities and colleges so you can seamlessly transfer without losing your credits or time. Talk to our transfer advocates for information about continuing your education after completing your ASN degree at Ivy Tech.

    Note that admission is not guaranteed just by enrolling in the ASN Traditional Track. You will need to be admitted to the institution you intend to transfer to. Learn more about Transfer as a Junior (TSAP) programs

The Ivy Tech Nursing program can be a challenging, yet rewarding, program. Before you apply, review the following requirements and expectations for nursing students.

Time Commitment

The Associate of Science in Nursing and Practical Nursing programs require a major commitment of time and energy. Nursing courses are typically scheduled over 3-4 days per week. Students may also need to schedule additional general education courses as needed each semester. It is essential that you plan for the same amount of study time as class time per week. Nursing course schedules and assignment due dates will not be adjusted to accommodate individual work schedules.

You can expect to spend the following hours each week in active contact for your courses (based on 8-week courses):

  • Lecture classes: 1 classroom contact hours per credit hour (so if a class is worth 3 credit hours, expect 6 contact hours)
  • Lab classes: 2 lab contact hours per credit hour
  • Clinical courses: 3 clinical contact hours per credit hour

Attendance

Students are expected to attend all class meetings, or other activities assigned as a part of a course of instruction. Attendance is necessary to maximize student-learning opportunities. Students who are absent are responsible for missed material. Clinical courses require that the student be present to effectively evaluate successful achievement of clinical course objectives and concepts, as clinical course objectives cannot be accomplished or evaluated outside the clinical setting. There are no make-up sessions for missed clinical hours; therefore, regular clinical attendance is mandatory for successful clinical course and program completion. These clinical locations may be up to one hour drive in any direction of the Ivy Tech full-service campus where you are enrolled.

The online application system allows students to apply to any nursing program and any location within the statewide system. Carefully consider the implications of being accepted to a campus requiring extended driving distances.

Mandatory Drug Testing and Criminal Background Screening

All nursing program clinical affiliates require mandatory drug testing and criminal background screening before allowing students to participate in clinical courses at their facilities. Results of these tests could impact your ability to complete nursing clinical courses and therefore, your ability to meet nursing program requirements for completion. Requiring criminal background and drug screenings ensures students meet the same standards as health care facility employees. Annual criminal background and drug screenings are required for all nursing students.

Eligibility for Licensure

Successful program completion provides students eligibility to apply to a state board of nursing to take the licensure examination (NCLEX-RN for Associate of Science in Nursing and NCLEX-PN for Practical Nursing). The Indiana State Board of Nursing (ISBN) application for licensure includes questions about criminal history, substance abuse problems, malpractice judgments, and disciplinary action on previous licenses and certifications. Students are encouraged to review the questions located on the ISBN application for examination. Similar questions are found on other state board of nursing applications.

If an applicant answers yes to any of the questions located on the ISBN application for examination they will be required to submit a sworn affidavit. It is possible that an applicant would not be eligible for licensure or face license restrictions after completing the nursing program. Read more about the licensure application

In addition, the state of Indiana will not authorize a graduate to take a National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX®) without a social security number. This is a mandatory Indiana State Board of Nursing (ISBN) requirement and applications to test cannot be processed without it. The United States Immigration and Nationality Act identifies that all candidates applying to take the NCLEX exam are required to be a U.S. citizen or be identified as a “Qualified Alien.” The U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act is found in the Federal Regulation 8 of the U.S.C.; Section 1641. In response to this federal legislation, Indiana Senate Bill SB419 became law in 2018 and provides for potential licensing of DACA and F1 in the state of Indiana. Students should seek their own legal counsel for concerns regarding these matters.

Nursing Program Student Requirements

The following are required for participation in clinical activities:

  • Annual criminal background and sex offender registry screening
  • Annual drug screening
  • Physical examination and verification of essential functions
  • Annual flu vaccination
  • Up-to-date immunizations including Hepatitis B series, MMR, Varicella, Tdap, Diphtheria, Pertussis, and COVID-19
  • Annual TB skin testing or other documentation for positive tests per CDC guidelines
  • Documentation of current CPR Certification in Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Providers from AHA or American Red Cross
  • Proof of ongoing unencumbered Indiana licenses or certifications for LPN to ASN, Medical Assistant, and Paramedic to ASN students

Students interested in applying for admission to a nursing program should begin locating childhood immunization records early to ensure complete vaccination and physicals are submitted by established deadlines.

Students with disabilities are required to contact the college Disabilities Support Staff at the campus of interest for assistance in requesting accommodations (if applicable).

Financial Aid

Connect with the Financial Aid team at your home campus to find out if you can receive financial aid for the program of your choice. Make sure that you have completed the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by the established deadlines to be considered for financial aid assistance.

Prerequisite Courses for Nursing

Completion of the following required prerequisite courses with a grade of “C” or higher is required for admission to the Associate of Science in Nursing and Practical Nursing long-term certificate programs:

  • APHY 101 Anatomy and Physiology I
  • ENGL 111 English Composition

Most students take these classes their first semester while enrolled in the Pre-Nursing Studies short-term certificate. If they desire to progress to a higher level degree or certificate, they then apply to the Nursing program to continue their studies.

In order for prerequisite general education courses to count toward your program admission decision score, the course grades must be posted to Banner by the time the application site closes and auto selection begins. Courses must be completed according to the specific deadlines listed below:

  • Fall admission - completed by the end of previous spring semester
  • Spring admission - completed by the end of the previous summer semester
  • Summer admission - completed by the end of the previous fall semester

The highest grade of the first three attempts for any prerequisite course will be considered for points toward the admission decision score. This includes grades of D, F, FW, and W.

No Expiration of Credits

There is no expiration date for course credits that were earned in previous years from Ivy Tech Community College.

Transfer Credit for Prerequisite Courses

Prerequisite courses completed at colleges other than Ivy Tech will only be considered for general education selection points if transfer credit has been awarded and courses appear on the Ivy Tech transcript prior to the application deadline.

TR grades are not recognized by the online application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that transfer credit has been awarded and that TR grades are updated to transfer letter grades (TA, TB, TC) on their Ivy Tech transcript.

It is recommended that college transcripts be submitted to the Registrar’s office for evaluation and transfer credit at least 4 weeks prior to the program application deadline to ensure adequate time for processing.

Class Formats

Due to the nature of the nursing profession and how much hands-on learning we incorporate into the curriculum, all Ivy Tech nursing courses are taught in a traditional, in-person format.

Information Sessions

Prospective students must participate in a Nursing Information Session or complete an online Nursing Information Session within 3 months prior to applying. The completion of one Information Session fulfills the requirement for all Ivy Tech locations. No reservation is required.

Required Testing and Documentation

The Nursing program at Ivy Tech has more specific admission criteria than Ivy Tech as a whole. Prospective students must:

  • Complete the Knowledge Assessment if they do not have previous college credit, ACT, SAT, or PSAT scores on file in the Registrar’s Office
  • Complete all required remedial courses (OXX) and any required co-requisites to those courses, prior to admission to the program (the first semester of nursing "NRSG" courses).
  • Score at the PROFICIENT level or higher on the ATI TEAS Test.
  • Submit a copy of their high school transcript or High School Equivalency Exam (GED or TASC) test scores. See more on transcript requirements below.

High School Transcript Requirements

Per Indiana State Board of Nursing regulations, applicants must submit a copy of their high school transcript or High School Equivalency Exam (GED or TASC) test scores. High school transcripts must include date of graduation.

Current high school students who will be graduating after the close of applications, but before the start of classes, are allowed to apply without a high school transcript and should submit a letter including anticipated graduation date and acknowledgment that the student will submit their high school transcript to the campus nursing dean by the indicated deadline.

International students will need to provide official credential evaluation from a NACES-approved organization showing the equivalence of a U.S. high school diploma. Official evaluation must be sent directly from the credential evaluator to the Ivy Tech campus registrar. A copy of the original high school transcript and the NACES evaluation must be submitted with the nursing program admission application. The NACES process takes some time and includes an associated fee, so please contact NACES early.

Prerequisite Transfer Credit

Students seeking transfer credit for prerequisite courses completed at other colleges desiring must submit transcripts from other colleges to the Registrar Hub for evaluation. Submit external college transcripts at least one month prior to the application deadline to allow for adequate time for evaluation and processing so that prerequisite course grades can be counted for points toward admission.

The email address students should relay to their colleges/universities for official transcripts to Ivy Tech is: transcripts@ivytech.edu

The mailing address students should relay to their colleges/universities for hard (paper) copies of official transcripts to Ivy Tech is:

The Assessment Technologies Institute’s (ATI) Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is used as part of the admissions process by the Ivy Tech School of Nursing programs.

Schedule Your TEAS Test Appointment Now

Test Components

The ATI TEAS test measures your ability in four categories: Reading, English, Math, and Science. Your TEAS test must include all four test components to be considered valid; partial tests will not be accepted. Applicants must score at the PROFICIENT level or higher to be considered for admission. ATI TEAS sub-category scores will be used in the selection point system.

Preparing for the TEAS Test

A good time for a high school student to take the ATI TEAS test is during the last semester of high school or upon graduation. If an interested student graduated from high school a year or more ago, the test should be taken after review of high school content and after you’ve completed at least a portion of the prerequisite courses for nursing. All candidates must attend an Ivy Tech online Nursing information session prior to taking the TEAS exam.

Test Deadlines & Timing

These dates will not change and will be consistent from year to year:

Semester

Test Deadline Date

Application Date

Fall April 30 May 15
Spring September 30 October 15
Summer January 15 February 1

TEAS testing must be completed within the published application deadlines (see table above) in order to be considered for the corresponding application period. Due to processing time for the ATI TEAS to appear in the student’s application, it is recommended that testing times be scheduled 2 to 4 weeks prior to the posted TEAS test deadline date. ATI TEAS scores not available by the deadlines will not be considered.

Applicants who take the ATI TEAS at schools other than Ivy Tech must contact Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) to have an official copy electronically submitted directly to Ivy Tech.

ATI TEAS Test scores will be valid for two (2) years from the date of the initial ATI TEAS test for all nursing program tracks and must be valid through the application deadline date.
ATI TEAS tests that expire prior to the application deadline will be ineligible for consideration towards program admission, even if the student applies prior to the application deadline.

Repeat Testing

The ATI TEAS test may be taken up to 2 times in a 2-year period regardless of the testing location. After your first attempt, you must wait at least 30 days prior to retaking your exam. Applicants must pay the approved testing fee with each attempt.

Allied Health vs. Nursing TEAS Tests

The ATI Allied Health and ATI Nursing TEAS tests are the same test; they are just scored differently. Taking the Allied Health TEAS will count the same as taking the ATI nursing TEAS test. When ATI Allied Health TEAS test scores are present on the ATI transcript, the applicant will need to contact ATI to request reporting of Nursing TEAS test scores. There may be an associated fee for requests such as these.

Taking the Test & Costs

The test takes approximately 3 1/2 hours to complete. Currently, only remote tests are being conducted. You will need your valid (non-expired) government-issued photo ID. All TEAS exam appointments must be made and paid for online through our self-serve site. The Remote TEAS exam fee for Ivy Tech students is $81 ($141 for non-students, but this is not available currently).

Save time on test day by setting up your computer in advance. View the Proctorio Student Training video.

Apply to Ivy Tech First

Students interested in attending the School of Nursing must first submit the Ivy Tech general application and complete the requirements for admission to the college. Admission to the college does not ensure acceptance to a nursing program, but students can be working on prerequisite courses for nursing after admission to the college and before applying to the nursing program of choice.

Apply to the School of Nursing

Once your prerequisite courses are complete and you have met the other requirements for admissions (such as completing the Knowledge Assessment and required remedial courses, scoring at the PROFICIENT level or higher on the ATI TEAS Test, and submitting your high school transcript or High School Equivalency Exam test scores), you may apply for admission to the School of Nursing.

Students may apply to the nursing program during three application windows each year:

  • March 15 - May 15 for Fall Program Start
  • August 15 - October 15 for Spring Program Start
  • December 1 - February 1 for Summer Program Start

Note: Not every campus accepts applications during every application window. Click here to view cohort starts by campus

Once the application site closes, late applications will not be accepted. You are encouraged to apply for the next cohort.

Offers of Admission

Students can select up to 3 credential types and 3 campuses each on the application.
Offers of acceptance are for a specific nursing credential and a specific campus. The offers are determined through 8 rounds of autoselection and 6 rounds of manual selection.

If you are accepted, you will receive an email from the online application system to your Ivy Tech email account offering you a seat in the program you selected. Offers are emailed beginning within 1 week of the application close date and continue until program capacity is met or one week before the start of semester classes. Each round of offers begins at 6:00 am and applicants have until 11:59 pm the following day to either accept or reject an offer.

Depending on their rank and offers, a student could potentially receive multiple offers.
Once you accept one offer, you are immediately withdrawn from all other offers and you will be contacted by the chair or dean of the program with information about the program orientation date, time, and location.

If a student fails to respond, then the offer expires. If a student rejects an offer three (3) times, the application is removed from the auto-selection application pool but will then be available for manual selection rounds that occur later in the process.

You do have the ability to withdraw your application at any point during the admission cycle. However, once you withdraw your application, you will not be able to apply again until the next application cycle.

What If I Don’t Get Admitted?

The Nursing program does not maintain a waitlist. Non-admitted applicants can reapply in the next semester’s application cycle. You may also want to meet with your advisor. Advisors can assist students in exploring other programs of interest in Ivy Tech’s School of Health Sciences if they have applied several times and have not been accepted into the nursing programs. Ivy Tech offers many programs similar to nursing that lead to high-demand jobs that may be new to you, but fit your passion to help others.

Selective Admissions

Admission to the nursing programs at Ivy Tech is highly competitive. The program has a selective admissions process, which means not all students who apply to the program will be accepted. Selective admission processes are needed because there are more people interested in taking courses in our nursing programs than there are seats available.

Weighted Point System

A weighted point system is used to evaluate applicants for admission. Student applications are assigned points on the following criteria: Grades, Pre-admission testing, and Certifications as applicable to the program. Applicants with the highest scores are accepted across 8 rounds of auto-selection within each application period. Point totals for applicants receiving admission offers will vary between campuses and application periods. Point totals are not shared.

Total Points Possible: 160 + 5 optional CNA Certification points

  • General Education Course Points: 60 points possible. Points are awarded based on prerequisite course grades.
  • ATI TEAS points: 100 points possible. Total of weighted sub-test point calculations.
  • CNA Certification points: 5 optional points possible with approved CNA documentation for applicants to ASN and PN programs. We accept verifications for active certifications in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, and Michigan only.

Tie Breaker Points:

  • ATI TEAS Adjusted Individual Total Score

General Education Weighted Point System

When multiple course attempts are reported on applicant transcripts (including transcripts from other colleges and universities), the highest earned grade of the first three attempts will be used for the selection decision score through the application period. Points for courses transferred from other institutions will be awarded from the grade recorded on the transcript from the other institution provided transfer credit appears on the Ivy Tech transcript. Points for verified credit (V) or college credit awarded through High School Advanced Placement, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) International Baccalaureate (IB) and Dantes Subject Standardized Test (DSST), will be awarded as indicated below.

Course A B C D/F Verified Credit
APHY 101 30 20 10 0 N/A
ENGL 111 15 10 5 0 10
PSYC 101 15 10 5 0 10

THE DEMAND FOR NURSES IS GROWING

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered nurses is “projected to grow 16 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.” 

That high demand is one reason Ivy Tech’s Practical Nursing long-term certificate is part of Indiana’s Next Level Jobs program, which, thanks to the Workforce Ready Grant, gives you the opportunity to earn a FREE credential from Ivy Tech. Learn more
