BSN Program Details
Louise Herrington School of Nursing of Baylor University, located in Dallas, Texas, offers the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. Graduates of the nursing program are eligible to sit for the NCLEX, a standardized exam used by state boards of nursing to determine whether or not the graduate is prepared for entry level practice. Admission to the School of Nursing is competitive and priority consideration is given to students who have completed a minimum of thirty-two (32) semester hours of the total 66 hours of prerequisites on the Baylor-Waco campus. To be considered for admission, a student must be eligible for admission to the University, have a 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher grade point average (GPA) on all completed prerequisites at the time of application. A minimum grade of 'C' is required in each course. A GPA of 3.0 assures consideration for admission. However, students admitted usually have higher GPA's.
The 66 hours of prerequisites may be taken on the Baylor-Waco campus or at another college or university. However, in order to be eligible to apply to the Louise Herrington School of Nursing, prospective students must have already completed 44 of the 66 pre-requisite credit hours, including 2 of the 4 science courses, with a grade of "C" or better and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better. The program (pre-nursing and nursing) is designed to be completed in four years - eight academic semesters. A student must attend full-time if admitted to the School of Nursing in Dallas.
