Schools offering Nursing in Indiana

Nurses are responsible for assisting doctors and taking care of the injured and sick, and the profession offers a wide range of specialties. Online nursing schools in Indiana can offer the necessary skills to prepare students for the health care setting of their choice.

Nursing careers

Many of the responsibilities of a nurse depend on his or her specific position or specialization, as well as the needs of the general public. Whatever the work environment, nurses perform a wide array of tasks, including these:

  • Treating wounds
  • Getting test results and lab work
  • Providing emotional support for patients and families
  • Administering treatment and medications
  • Working in emergency rooms and intensive care units

  • Running immunization centers and clinics

  • General medical and surgical hospitals
  • Physicians' offices
  • Home health care services
  • Nursing care facilities
  • Outpatient care centers
  • Most licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses are found nationally in nursing care facilities, hospitals, doctors' offices, home health care and community care facilities for the elderly.

    Indiana nursing schools, online and on-campus

    A range of available training options includes Indiana Wesleyan University's online nursing programs. After completing a degree, a student must then pass a licensing test, known as the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), in order to become a RN. Licensed professionals can seek employment opportunities at facilities such as Indiana University Health, Methodist Hospitals in Gary and Merrillville, and Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, which services over 700 beds.

    The BLS reports a mean annual wage of $57,820 for RNs in Indiana as of May 2010, while LPNs and LVNs in the state earned $38,100. Specialized positions--such as personal care services or pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing--can pay higher rates, according to BLS data. Indiana nursing schools online can help prepare students to seek rewarding employment opportunities after graduation.
