New Building Campaign

Our Past

Since its inception in 1909 as one of the first nursing programs in Texas, Baylor University's Louise Herrington School of Nursing has been guided by its unique mission to prepare baccalaureate and graduate level nurses, integrate faith with learning for professional practice, health care leadership and worldwide service. The Baylor name is synonymous with excellence in health care, and it is this reason that hospitals across the state have partnered with us to educate and train the next generation of nurses. The demand for nurses remains high, driven by expanded access to health care and a growing elderly population. Also, advances in medical technologu and a rapidly changing health care delivery system require highly educated nursing professionals. In addition to providing state-of-the-art care, nurses facilitate industry efforts to improve access, ensure quality and maintain affordability.

Our Future

To meet the need for nurses and accomodate the LHSON's growing program, Baylor University recently purchased a 100,000 square foot, four-story office building adjacent to the current nursing school building. Baylor University Medical Center and the more than 20 professional nursing practice sites in Dallas communities. Renovations will dramatically address the LHSON's needs for more classrooms and for student service space. The new campus will create a space for students to congregate and collaborate and active learning classrooms will empower them with technology while fostering more dynamic group interaction. Additionally, a new auditorium will providde the Nursing School much-needed space for speakers and events, as well as dor instruction.
