Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg/Batesville Nursing Program’s pass rate for Registered Nurse licensing exceeded 90 percent.

The college also provides significant support for its students to ensure they are on a path to success.

The Nursing Program at Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg/Batesville is just one of the more than 30 academic and career-training programs Ivy Tech offers at its three southeastern campuses, which include two in Lawrenceburg and the Batesville.

The College’s academic programs, accessibility, and support of students are aligned with the needs of the communities it serves and the area workforce needs.

“Students who complete their education at Ivy Tech will be well prepared to start their careers or continue their education at a four-year institution. Our faculty and staff invest their expertise and time to help students succeed in reaching their goals.”

Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg/Batesville offers academic programs in high-demand career areas that include advanced manufacturing, business, education, healthcare, and information technology. Some of the college’s most popular programs include nursing, business administration, cybersecurity, and welding.

“We have affordable options that put an advanced education within reach for students in our area, and the College offers a variety of support services for students so that they can focus on their academic coursework or career training.”

Students who plan to transfer to a four-year university can take a prescribed set of courses to

Ivy Tech offers the lowest college tuition in the state, making it Indiana’s best value in higher education. Students who choose to start their college journey at Ivy Tech and then transfer to another college or university can save more than $10,000 on their bachelor’s degree.

Ivy Tech also has transfer partnerships in which it has collaborated with four-year institutions to provide students with seamless pathways to a bachelor’s degree. Ivy Tech’s transfer partners include Indiana University, Purdue University, Ball State University, the University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University, and many others.

A special Ivy Tech program known as ASAP, which stands for Associate Accelerated Program, offers students the chance to complete a two-year associate degree in just 11 months in certain academic programs.

ASAP is rigorous, full-time program, through which students work with a small, close-knit group of other students. ASAP is designed for students to encourage and support each other as they work to complete their associate degree and transfer to a four-year university at an accelerated pace.

The College has also partnered with area high schools to provide students with an opportunity to start earning college credits in high school through dual credit and dual enrollment classes.

Dual credit courses are taught at the high school, while dual enrollment courses are taught on Ivy Tech campuses by Ivy Tech faculty.

As the state’s community college, Ivy Tech offers a variety of ways for students to advance their education and prepare to enter the workforce. To schedule a visit at the Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg or Batesville campuses, visit
