Idaho State University was founded in 1901 and now offers more than 250 programs across several campuses. It is a research university with a major focus on health sciences. Students from various health-related professional programs regularly complete their clinical work at the ISU Health Center, which treats over 10,000 students each year. The ISU Career Path Internship (CPI) program also provides paid internships to help students earn professional experience while in school. The university maintains a low student-to-teacher ratio with just 14 students per faculty member.

The ISU College of Nursing offers many options for those interested in nursing. Along with a traditional BSN program, they offer several BSN paths including LPN to BSN and RN to BSN. They even offer an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). ISU is the only university in the state to offer a doctoral degree in nursing and they have two doctoral level programs. All programs, from the ADN to the doctoral programs, are accredited. The graduate programs are accredited through the CCNE while the associate degree program is accredited through the ACEN. These programs combine in-classroom learning and online learning, providing more flexibility to students. The clinical experiences are provided by both state-of-the-art simulation labs and hands-on work at off-campus hospitals and health facilities.
