Additional Information

For more than 110 years, the LHSON has been known for preparing the next generation of nurses with competence and compassion for all levels of patient care. Located in the heart of Dallas, Texas, the nursing school was established in 1909 as a diploma program within Baylor Hospital in Dallas, which is now Baylor Scott & White Health’s Baylor University Medical Center and in 1950 became one of the six degree-granting schools of Baylor University. The first Baccalaureate degrees were granted in 1952 establishing the school among the earliest baccalaureate nursing programs in Texas. In 1999, the School was renamed the Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing after Louise Herrington Ornelas, a 1992 Baylor Alumna Honoris Causa, who made an endowment gift to the school. Today the LHSON is comprised of a 100-square-feet, contemporary new four-story Academic Building that includes active learning classrooms for professors to deliver state-of-the-art instruction through innovative active learning methodologies, plus much more. We also have a four-story Clinical Simulation Building used for clinical practice laboratories and research.

In the specialty rankings, LHSON’s U.S. Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing (USAGPAN), is ranked No. 8 nationally, while Baylor’s nurse-midwifery program is ranked at No. 21 in the nation. USNWR’s 2020 Best Online Programs ranked LHSON’s Master of Science in Nursing Leadership and Innovation in the top 25% nationally, moving up to No. 41.
