Founded in 1914 and celebrating its 100th anniversary, Indiana University School of Nursing has been at the heart of health care in the state with its long term commitment to education, research, community engagement, and health advocacy. Begun at the same time as IU’s Long Hospital, the Training School for Nurses had five students in its first graduating class. Today the School of Nursing reaches across the state with National League for Nursing accredited schools on eight Indiana University campuses and consistently ranks among the top 20 nursing schools nationally. Its research program is firmly established, with four well-funded research centers exploring chronic illness, oncology, nursing education, and palliative and end-of-life care. A Legacy of Leadership charts the growth of the school from its earliest years to the present day, a model for research in clinical care, distinction in nursing education, and evidence-based education for the practice of nursing.
