Nursing

The Louise Herrington School of Nursing offers upper division (junior and senior) bachelor and master programs at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, a world-famous teaching and research hospital. Undergraduate nursing students pursue a bachelor's degree in nursing while preparing for the registered nurse licensure. A student majoring in Nursing will complete his or her first 66 hours in Waco, and then move on to complete the final 65 hours at the Dallas campus. The school and all its programs have received full accreditation by The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and are approved by the Texas Board of Nurses. Available courses include:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • The Childbearing Family
  • Intro to Critical Care Nursing
  • Oncological Nursing
  • Human Needs

Baylor's first two years of pre-nursing combines liberal arts with natural and behavioral science courses. The two years in Dallas provides students with advanced courses and field experience, preparing them for a professional career in nursing. Clinicals are performed in the Baylor Medical Healthcare System (clinical ratio of faculty to students is 10 to 1). By learning and using the same technology and systems that the Baylor Medical Healthcare System uses, students are competitive in the job market.

Baylor University offers several Living-Learning Centers, which are housing opportunities designed to place students of common interests together in living and learning environments. Baylor offers a Science and Health Living-Learning Center where students with common interest in pursuing a career in medicine and the sciences will be able to collaborate with each other as well as science faculty and medical researchers.
