Wholeness for the individual, the family, and the community.
Are you called to be a healer?
Health care affects everyone. We’re in this together. Houston Baptist University’s School of Nursing and Allied Health trains the nurses and health care professionals that care for the well-being of our communities.
True health is more than just avoiding or treating sickness. It’s about promoting the wholeness of the person and the community. Our Nursing and Kinesiology students understand this. They bring enthusiasm, care, and diligence to this rigorous challenge. Nursing and Kinesiology together account for about a third of the university's enrollment. Read more about HBU Health Profession Programs and how they develop holistic health professionals.  
But it’s not just the wholeness of the patient that matters; the wholeness of our students is of utmost importance to us. Our faculty get to know our students by name and help them grown in...

  • The curriculum is integrated with general studies for a total university experience.
  • Our students gain hundreds of hours of hands-on clinical experience in top level hospitals, our on-campus simulation lab, and the Bradshaw Fitness Center.
  • Our students are organized into cohorts that form strong emotional bonds as they take classes together and mentor each other through the Nursing Student Association.
  • Prayer and bible studies are available for students who wish to participate.

As of January 1, 2013, the School of Nursing and Allied Health has discontinued its Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program to focus on preparing the highest quality of Registered Nurse clinicians and leaders in the BSN program, which has seen a steady increase in enrollment in the last four years. The goal of the school has been -- and will continue to be -- to make a positive impact on the growing and ever-changing healthcare industry and the major hospital systems serving the Houston community.
