Called to
Make a Difference
The unique mission of the Louise Herrington School of Nursing of Baylor University is to prepare baccalaureate and graduate level nurses, within a Christian community, for professional practice, health care leadership, and worldwide service. Our Christian faith is at the very heart of nursing theory and practice. We believe that nurses have been called to make a difference. Few academic disciplines give students the opportunity to so thoroughly integrate faith and learning, faith with leadership, and faith with service. Our school's unique faith based approach prepares our students for a committed life of caring.
Students complete two years of upper-division professional coursework at the school (two years for BSN Traditional or 12 months for BSN FastBacc), 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 Louise Herrington School of Nursing offers the Baccalaureate in Nursing to Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degrees in Family Nurse Practitioner, Neonatal Nurse Practitioner, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Midwifery and Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner . We also offer a separate Doctor of Nursing Practice - Executive Nurse Leadership (DNP-ENL) degree and United States Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing (USAGPAN).
