New Program: Centenary College to Baylor Nursing School

by Associated Press

SHREVEPORT, La. — Centenary College says a new program helps science graduates enter a one-year program at Baylor University’s nursing school.

Representatives from the schools in Shreveport and Dallas signed the agreement last week.

Centenary spokeswoman Kate Pedrotty says students who graduate with all of the courses required to get into Baylor’s FastBacc program will be considered for admission before other students from outside Baylor.

FastBacc students come in with a bachelor’s degree outside of nursing and take 62 hours of nursing course work on the Dallas campus.

Shelly Conroy is dean of Baylor’s Louise Herrington School of Nursing. She says Baylor and Centenary are a good match, since both are faith-based institutions.

Centenary is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, and Baylor describes itself as a Christian school founded by Baptists.
