As a leader in online nursing education, Baylor University understands the needs of working RNs, the challenge of achieving work-life balance and the support our online nursing students need to be successful. Our Online DNP, and Distance ABSN students can expect the same academic excellence and student support as the on-campus nursing students.
From the start of your program, we pair you with your own Student Success Advisor, who works with you every step of the way to ensure you have access to the resources needed to successfully complete your advanced practice nursing degree. They are focused on the student experience and student success from initial enrollment all the way through graduation. Some of the ways they will support you include:
Advise you on your degree path
Provide guidance and counseling regarding course selection and course load
Assist you during initial orientation
Monitor your progress in class and check in to discuss your needs

Clinical Placement Support
Baylor University’s Louise Herrington School of Nursing believes you are only as successful as your training, which is why we will collaborate with you to identify clinical sites and preceptors for clinical rotations. This will enable you to focus on coursework and developing core competencies rather than spending a significant amount of time on the logistics of clinical placements. However, if you already have a placement site or preceptor in mind, students are encouraged to refer them to the placement team to secure.
Many of our students find clinical placement sites to be potential locations for future employment opportunities upon graduation.
Additionally, our faculty and staff are accessible; you may reach out at any time directly to your instructors to get the additional support you need.
Be Bold. Be Decisive. Be Exceptional. Become a Baylor Nurse.
