Service and Missions Overview

Students in the Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing are offered the opportunity to participate in missions. It’s a decision to serve and do extraordinary good to make the world a better place. Through domestic and international missions students give back to the community with their nursing skills and spiritual heart.

Why Missions Matter

• Communicate the gospel of Christ in word and deed
• Actualize your faith through service
