Missions are an integral part of what makes our Graduate and Undergraduate Nursing programs stand out. Each student that is interested in missions has the opportunity to explore the world of mission. Students learn that reaching out to others can be a transforming part of their lives. The chance to work with faculty and students in mission is an enriching part of life in a Christian University.
Missions at Baylor University School of Nursing are as varied as our students. From local outreach health fairs to multiple week international trips the Baylor Nursing students are engaged in the work of missions. New areas of mission work for the students are being developed and each semester finds more students ministering to God's people while using their gifts and talents.
The Agape Clinic in East Dallas offers students an opportunity to serve the urban population of Dallas while gaining skills in community health nursing on both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
For decades students have participated in a mission trip to Mexico over the Christmas break. Students conduct clinics along side faculty and help meet the needs of local communities. It is a wonderful trip, part of the School of Nursing Heritage, and a way for undergraduates to reach out in Jesus Christ name.
Students preparing to graduate from the mission based Family Nurse Practitioner program have the opportunity to participate in the FNP Capstone trip. This multi-week trip allows the student to be immersed in another culture while working in clinics for hands on practice treating tropical diseases.
