Pre-Nursing Program

Dallas Baptist University is committed to producing servant leaders who have the ability to impact the world of health care for Christ. Building on the excellence of our biology and pre-medical programs, DBU has established a Transfer Student Articulation Agreement with Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing in Dallas.

The program provides DBU Pre-Nursing students with a clear path to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. These students have the opportunity to complete their education from two respected institutions who both educate within a Christian environment while training for God's call on their lives.

Through this special program, qualified Pre-Nursing students attend DBU to earn the first 70 hours of coursework, completing the Associate of Science degree at DBU, before applying to Baylor’s School of Nursing to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

DBU students may remain in DBU housing while completing their degree in nursing at Baylor.
