WBU School of Nursing

The School of Nursing’s mission statement is based on the values and beliefs of the Wayland Baptist University mission. The mission of Wayland Baptist University School of Nursing is to educate students in a Christian environment. The goal is to prepare graduates who provide holistic nursing care at both beginning and advanced practice levels in a diverse healthcare world. The school prepares graduates committed to providing evidence-based patient care, teaching, service, and outreach. 

Learn the art and skill of nursing from professional practitioners. The low faculty-student ratio, small class sizes, state-of-the-art labs, and high-fidelity simulation rooms will bring students one step closer to achieving their academic and professional dreams.

Occupational Outlook: 

The U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts more than 200,000 job openings for registered nurses each year over the next decade.1 As employers are increasingly requiring bachelor’s degrees for entry-level  nurses, WBU SON’s programs can help increase employability in a competitive environment. Earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing can help to improve the ability for a nurse to deliver care, open opportunities for new specialties, and help make more desirable candidates for leadership and management positions.
