Student Testimonies

"The process of going through the MSN in Leadership and Innovation online program at Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing was challenging and enriching both personally and professionally. Through the coursework I was able to improve my leadership skills and abilities while learning new and innovative ways to increase the quality of patient care provided to the population served by the facility in which I work. In addition, as a leader, I am better prepared to work within an interdisciplinary team that will guide healthcare towards providing STEEEP care aimed at achieving "The IHI Triple Aim".  As a nurse with an advanced degree, I feel as though the leadership I provide has the backing of an educational component that will aid in building a foundation focused on advancing our profession in both intraprofessional and interprofessional settings. While the program is demanding, and requires a huge commitment of time, it is definitely possible to continue to work along with focusing on the requirements of the program. My work only enhanced the learning within the MSN program goals."

"As a manager at Baylor Plano, I thought many times of obtaining a Master's degree. However, balancing between the commitment to a program, to one's staff and to oneself makes a decision difficult. However, from the first time I saw the course content of Baylor University's MSN in Leadership and Innovation, I knew I had found my direction and motivation. I have gained a wealth of information and experience during these last 9 months. I highly recommend this program especially for the potential leader who wants to learn in a fast-paced, high functioning program with an emphasis on creativity and orginality. "

"I am part of the original cohort for the MSN program and have recommended the program to my coworkers. In fact, I am proud that three of my work colleagues are in the newest cohort. What I find most valuable about this program is the individual attention we receive from our professors. They really take the time to get to know us and to provide individual feedback to help us grow as scholars and leaders. Further, the online format allows me to balance school with work and family. While the program is rigorous and challenging, it is still possible to be successful in this program while working full time."
