Online MSN Programs in Indiana

The following state-approved schools offer fully or partially online Master of Science in Nursing programs in Indiana. Most of these programs offer a limited number of specialties online, so narrowing down a list of potential schools based on desired concentration is recommended.

Bethel University

Bethel University offers two tracks for Master of Science degrees in nursing, both available fully online: Nurse Educator and Nurse Administrator. This degree is designed to be completed in two years. Hybrid courses are also available for those willing to attend class once a week.

Indiana State University

This school offers concentrations in Family Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Administration, or Nursing Education, which include specialized coursework after the completion of a core curriculum.

Purdue University Northwest

Of their MSN offerings, only two of Purdue's MSN tracks are offered fully online: Nursing Education and Nursing Executive. An accelerated option allows the student to complete the program in 12 months; otherwise, part-time students can typically complete the degree within two years.

Ball State University

Ball State University MSN students may pursue one of three paths: Nurse Educator (online coursework + 180-hour practicum on a nearby college campus), Nurse Administrator (online coursework + 180 practicum hours), and Family Nurse Practitioner (online coursework + 690 clinical hours). Students can do coursework on their own schedule, as no specific sign-in times are required.

Indiana University South Bend

Of their nine MSN tracks, the following five are offered online: Nursing Education, Nursing Leadership in Health Systems, Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Pediatric Clinical Nurse Specialist, Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Full-time students can complete the degree in two years, while part-time students will typically take three.

A hybrid MSN Family Practitioner degree is available at St. Francis, requiring attendance on campus every other Tuesday with both full-time and part-time options. This course includes 645 clinical hours.

Nursing Licensure in Indiana

After attending an initial licensure program recognized by the Indiana Board of Nursing, applicants must earn a passing score on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and then apply with the Indiana State Board of Nursing for licensure to practice in Indiana. Indiana does not stipulate an overall continuing education requirement for regular license renewal, provided that the renewal occurs within the allotted time and all statutory requirements are met. An Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), however, must complete 30 hours of continuing education, including 8 hours of pharmacology.

As of July 2019, Indiana has begun the process of enrollment in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), though the statutes will not take effect until implementation is complete (a process which typically takes one year). The provisions of the NLC allow nurses versatility in terms of relocation: nurses in NLC states can practice in other NLC states without obtaining additional licensure.
