Community Nursing Academy at Ball State

Ball State University's School of Nursing partnered with Community Health Network to create the Nursing Academy, an accelerated degree program designed to increase the number of registered nurses in Indiana and apply innovative approaches to better prepare student nurses for their transition to professional practice.

The Nursing Academy offers a hybrid approach of learning through classes offered at Ball State, online and via video conferencing. Students also work at hospitals within Community Health Network, receiving on-the-job experience while being immersed in a clinical setting.
