The Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing's 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.
The administration, faculty and staff of LHSON hold these core values:
- We believe in an education that incorporates Christian principles into the curriculum. The education is experienced in an environment where the individual is valued and supported by the consistent role modeling of the Christian faith.
- We value an environment where academic freedom allows the discovery and discussion of diverse ideas.
- We value achieving and maintaining competence and striving for excellence in the various roles of students, faculty and staff.
