Fast-track program lets students earn two degrees simultaneously

Innovative program supports an improved career path. 

Together, the Indiana University School of Nursing and School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI are offering students the opportunity to earn a Master of Science in health informatics while earning a bachelor's degree in nursing. The program is designed to be a flexible, affordable option to give students a leg up on their career path.

Through the program, nicknamed the “Four Plus One,” students can begin taking graduate-level classes during junior year at an undergraduate tuition rate. The following year, students can take part-time classes while working or apply for assistantships. It will take three additional semesters to complete both degrees.
