Traditional undergraduate Pre-nursing students at Baylor complete their first two years on the Baylor campus before transitioning to the Louise Herrington School of Nursing (LHSON), which is located in Dallas on the campus of Baylor University Medical Center.

The LHSON also offers a 12-month accelerated Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) program for students who have already earned a baccalaureate degree in another field.

The Graduate Studies Program offers part or full-time study in one of three advanced practice majors: Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Advanced Neonatal Nursing (NNP) and Nurse Midwifery (CNM). Students completing the Nurse Midwifery track are awarded a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree.

For more information visit the Louise Herrington School of Nursing website.
