The Undergraduate Program
The Traditional Track requires 66 hours of prerequisite courses and 65 hours of upper-division coursework.
The school's pre-nursing curriculum combines liberal arts with natural and behavioral science courses. Although many of our students take these prerequisites on the Baylor campus, a number of them come to the Dallas campus from other approved colleges and universities to finish their upper-division coursework.
Students complete two years of upper-division professional coursework at the school, located on the campus of Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, a world-famous teaching and research hospital, in a city that is known around the globe as one of the leading centers for medicine and health care.
The FastBacc Track is a 12 month accelerated post-baccalaureate program. Student must have completed a bachelor's degree in a non-nursing discipline and complete 62 hours of nursing course work on the Dallas campus.
The baccalaureate and master's degree programs have received full, national accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and are approved by the Texas Board of Nurses. All Baylor nursing graduates are qualified to the write the NCLEX for registered nurses in any state.
