Faculty Profiles

Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing is blessed by a diverse and highly regarded faculty and staff dedicated to providing an environment that integrates faith and excellent academics. This dynamic team of talent is anchored by a commitment to the firm foundation upon which Baylor University and also the Louise Herrington School of Nursing has grown and prospered over the years. Together we strive to support our students' success through our unique philosophy that nursing is calling and our belief that one nurse will do good a thousand times over. 

Abigail Slattery

I've felt that my professors here do care genuinely about my education and that the times in which I have reached out to them, either via email or even calling them on the phone, they've been receptive to my concerns or to assist me with any academic problems that I might be having.”

Abagael Slattery, Online DNP-NM Student

 

We have faculty that make themselves available to us, and truly try to shape their curriculum how we need it. So that's been helpful. Last semester, we had two classes that both had a final paper and a final test that were really big. I emailed one of our teachers and just said, "Hey, I've talked to a few people… everybody's worried about how they're going to get both of these done." And that faculty member responded to me and very simply said, "If you guys are struggling with it, let's just kick out the due date a week later. Does that make it easier for you?

Lucinda Bush, Online DNP-FNP Student

Faculty has been very accessible and has been incredibly helpful, and I would say, very for me, and the other students that I've talked with, very for us moving forward in the program.
