School of Nursing
My Indiana University Kokomo degree allowed me to pursue my career in nursing. I obtained my first job quickly after graduation. My degree allows me to work every day at a job I love. I am sure I will encounter many more opportunities that allow me to flourish in my career. I look forward to utilizing my degree to its fullest potential, and possibly furthering my education.

The foundation you need to succeed

School of Nursing inducts 50 students
“We are proud of our newest future nurses, and excited about the impact they will make, both in north central Indiana and around the world,” said Wallace. “There is no better place than the IU Kokomo School of Nursing to begin this journey.” IU Kokomo graduated 147 Bachelor of Science in Nursing students and 10 Master of Science in Nursing students in 2015. The newly inducted future nurses anticipate graduating in December 2018.
Nursing students assist with lead testing
Nursing students at Indiana University Kokomo immersed themselves into the local community by assisting with screening more than 300 elementary children for lead after slightly elevated levels of the element were detected in the school’s water. About 25 students and faculty volunteered to help the Howard County Health Department and the Indiana State Department of Health with the precautionary testing at Eastern Elementary School.
Nursing students receive specialized training
A nurse is the last line of defense between a patient and the wrong medication. At Indiana University Kokomo, student nurses receive specialized training in preventing medication errors through a partnership with the Purdue College of Pharmacy. The IU Kokomo School of Nursing is the first in Indiana to offer the Medication Safety Essentials (MSE) program.
