The Baylor University Online Experience

Baylor's Louise Herrington School of Nursing provides students with a competitively robust education through the integration of faith and academic excellence. Students can expect the same level of quality education through the online format.

  • The coursework is available to you in the virtual learning environment 24 hours a day, which allows you to complete your degree while working around your work and personal schedule.
  • Students stay with the same classmates throughout their degree, allowing for meaningful relationships and impactful conversations.
  • In addition, students are provided a Student Success Advisor as a resource who will work with them from their entrance into a program all the way through graduation.

Alumni Network & Friends

Your role in the Baylor family is a vital one. Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing alumni, donors, and friends of Baylor are treasured. We hope you enjoy staying connected with other Baylor LHSON alumni through the nursing school's chapter of the Baylor Alumni Network as well as all the wonderful events of the Baylor Women’s Council of Dallas and other events in your area or through publications like Learn.Lead.Serve.® magazine, social media tools, or campus events at the nursing school in Dallas. 

After graduation, there are countless opportunities for Baylor alumni to stay connected to the university, share fellowship with one another, welcome non-Baylor members into the fold, further one's education and celebrate what it means to be a Baylor Bear with the Official Baylor Ring.

Regardless of when you graduated, Baylor Alumni Programs invite you to be a part of the ever-growing community that Baylor provides to all alumni. Learn more here.

We have a lot of people that are devoted to our success and making sure that we're managing our time well and really checking in and making themselves available as a resource if we're struggling in any aspect."

Online DNP-FNP Student, Lucinda Bush


"I have been thrilled with the DNP-ENL program at Baylor. Every assignment and reading we do has meaning and translates to what I do daily. The resources available to students through the DNP program are very helpful."

- Online DNP-ENL Student, Tami Taylor, MSN, MBA, RN, NEA-BC


"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."

- Online MSN Student, Karen Stanzo, MSN, RN, IBCLC


"I knew Baylor was the right fit for me because they aren't just preparing nurse practitioners for the physiological role as a provider, but holistically training providers in leadership, policy change, and preparing them for the entire role."
