“Behold the handmaid of the Lord; give me this day my work to do, no, not my work but Thine.” -Florence Nightingale
Our nursing majors are committed to being “clock-builders, not time-tellers.” Houston Baptist University educates nurses to create health care delivery systems to meet the needs of individuals, families, and groups in society, not just function within the current system.
Because of this commitment our students are organized into close-knit cohorts, each named after a famous time-piece, that form tight bonds as they progress through the degree program together. They take classes together, study together, pray together, and mentor each other through the Peer-Assisted Learning program of the Nursing Student Association. Who knows how the people you meet at HBU will affect your life and career in the future!
