In partnership with CINDD and other nursing organizations, ICN is developing strategies to address the educational needs of Indiana’s nursing programs.

The Council promotes excellence in Indiana nursing education, and safety and quality of patient care by:

  • increasing nursing education’s responsiveness to the health and healthcare needs of Indiana citizens
  • sharing and promoting best practices in nursing education
  • providing a forum for collaboration and meaningful discussion about nursing education

Membership is open to any Indiana institution that conducts a nursing program approved by the Indiana State Board of Nursing (ISBN). Representatives include deans, directors, department heads and chairpersons (or designees). The Council meets at least twice a year.
